Volunteering comes highly recommended by Albury's Ian Campbell, who says benefits include meeting like-minded people and making new friends.
As a volunteer, retiree Ian Campbell says it's very rewarding to see the end result of a project.
For example, repairing fencing following bushfires or flooding.
"The farmers and families are so grateful for what gets achieved; it's very satisfying," he said.
Ian, who has been retired for 13 years, has always been a volunteer.
