Limerick City Community and Voluntary Fair 2010

Our Munster Images Event Photography Service covered this Years City Community and Voluntary Fair at City Hall. A great day despite a few showers bit the crowd did not seem to mind much.


Get involved. Come to the 2010 Limerick City Community & Voluntary Fair which will be held at Limerick City Hall overlooking the Shannon, on Sunday 12th September 2010 starting at 1pm. 
While continuing to celebrate and promote Active Citizenship, Volunteerism and the ongoing partnership between service providers, community and voluntary groups, cultural and sporting organizations, this year a special emphasis will be placed on ‘Integrating Limerick: One Community Many Voices’.
This will be a great opportunity to experience the changing face of Limerick, support Regeneration, welcome New Communities and let the people of Limerick know what is on offer in our City. The Fair will provide an occasion to celebrate the people of Limerick as One Community with Many Voices through music, dance, fun and great food.
Opportunities for participation and involvement in the community will be on offer. If your club, group or organisation is looking for participants or volunteers, or you as an individual want to get involved in something new, this is the place to be.
The Fair will be a celebration of people helping people and neighbour helping neighbour. Studies have shown there is a huge health benefit to volunteering. Take the time to see what you have to contribute, get involved and make a difference in your community.
