The Glendale and Glendale Meadows Community Association is an organization of volunteers who strive to enrich the quality of life of all citizens in the community. A strong Community Association benefits the community by supporting and running local programs and initiatives that make our community safer, greener, healthier and happier. The Association also serves an important role, allowing citizens to express a broad range of concerns, whether it be social and physical planning, transportation or any concerns where citizens represent themselves to local decision makers.
Volunteers are essential for the Association. All those who are involved in the community association activities are volunteers who give their time and talents freely in an effort to make their community a better place to live. Your help as an organizer, coach, participant or interested member would be welcome. Call any of your Board of Directors to volunteer or for information about your association.
