The Ashby Village Healthier Aging Program needs volunteers who can do any or several of the tasks listed below:


Involving hiking and walking ability:

  • Assist in leading walks (lead a sub-group of hikers/walkers on an alternate trail; take up the rear of a spread-out group, take photographs)
  • Serve as a walking/exercise companion for local, in-town walks or classes on a regular basis
  • Scout new trail combinations for quality, elevation gain, attractiveness, distance, alternatives, and time to walk.


    Office work not involving hiking or walking ability:

  • Assist in scheduling walks/hikes
  • Using a template, write up notices to go in the calendar (Village Newsletter and weekly list of activities)
  • Keep lists of participants
  • Assist in publicizing walks (maintain a list of all participants, send out notices of walks to volunteers on list)
  • Help arrange rides/carpools for participants
  • Select an appropriate poem to be read at the start of a hike/walk
  • Create a spreadsheet of walks for future walk leaders: their write-ups, special features, seasonality, difficulty, photos, comments
