Would you recommend your friends to volunteer at the Lake Wales Arts Center with you? If so, why?
I would recommend volunteering at the Art Center to my friends especially those who are artistically or musically inclined. There is much to be learned from the people who come to the Art Center. I would also recommend it to those who aren't because volunteering is always fun and rewarding.
