A team of Summit Natural Gas- Maine employees recently volunteered at Maine Farm Days, an annual agricultural trade show held at Misty Meadows Farm in Clinton, Maine. Over three days, twenty Summit team members helped with a variety of activities at the event, from setting up the day before the event started to serve ice cream and lead activities at the Children’s Tent, including tie dying t-shirts and participating in the dunk tank.
In addition to organizing and providing volunteers for the two-day event, Summit also sponsored the Children’s Tent where kids had the opportunity to engage with farm animals and take part in a variety of activities, including milking cows and ice cream making.
The volunteer opportunity was made possible by Summit’s award-winning Volunteer Time Off program, which provides employees up to 20 hours a year of paid time off to volunteer in the community.
