    Carl Stokking is a talent from right here in Medford with ambi- tions to give back.

    “Ever since I got a guitar at 10 years old, I knew music was what I wanted to do,” Stokking said. “I would just get lost for hours and hours writing and playing music.”

    He was given a cherry red Washburn electric guitar by his parents, a day he says he will forever

    be grateful for. His parents Nancy and William

    both played the cello, so he was naturally influenced by them when it came to music.

    He used to try to emulate leads by Kirk Hammett of Metallica and David Gilmour of Pink Floyd in his early playing days.

    After he was done with school,

    Local teens interested in volun- teering their services to some worthy organizations should mark their calendars for the spe- cial one-day “Youth Volunteer Op- portunities Fair” scheduled for Saturday, April 18 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Burlington County Library in Westampton.

    Hosted by the Burlington County Library System in part- nership with the Volunteer Cen- ter of Burlington County, the fair

    will showcase a variety of organi- zations in need of a helping hand

    from area youths. During the event, representatives from the various groups will be available to share information about both summer and year-round opportu- nities with the potential volun- teers, as well as their parents and guardians.

    This is the second year the li- brary and the volunteer center have offered this event, and last year, about a dozen organizations participated. A few of the organi-

    zations expected to be present this year are: American Red Cross; Burlington County Li- brary; Burlington County; Munic- ipal Alliances; CONTACT Teen- Line; Library Company of  Burlington; Masonic Home; New- borns in Need; Samaritan Health & Hospice; Twin Oaks Communi- ty Services; and Volunteer Center of Burlington County. Additional

    organizations also are expected to be showcased.

    Founded in 1996, the Volunteer Center of Burlington County is a private, nonprofit organization that provides and promotes vol- unteer opportunities, programs and services to meet community needs. The center is dedicated to helping individuals and groups find volunteer work that is most suitable to their interests, skills, abilities, location, schedule and

    age. The Burlington County Li-

    brary is located at 5 Pioneer Blvd. off Woodlane Road in Westamp- ton. Registration is not required. For more information about the Youth Volunteer Opportunities Fair, please call the Volunteer Center of Burlington County at (609) 894-9311, ext. 1492, or email volcenter@hotmail.com
