BEMIDJI — AARP Foundation Tax-Aide is looking for compassionate and friendly people to join their volunteer team, including at the Bemidji Senior Center. There will be training and support to help volunteers learn new skills.

Volunteers can come from a variety of industries and span from retirees to college students, a release said.

"Volunteers fill a variety of roles. Counselors work with taxpayers directly to fill out tax returns. No experience is needed. You will get the training you need and will also get IRS certification. Client facilitators welcome taxpayers, help organize paperwork and manage the overall flow of service," the release said. "Leadership and administrative volunteers make sure program operations run smoothly, manage volunteers and maintain quality control."

Some of these positions can be filled remotely. Training, equipment and supplies are provided. Volunteers are asked to provide at least 40 hours of service during the tax season from Feb. 1 through April 5.

Supplies and equipment are provided and mileage reimbursement is available through the AARP Foundation. For more information, contact (218) 751-0060.

Eighteen miles northwest of Bemidji, in the backwoods of Buzzle Township, is Pinewood — once an operative logging camp filled with lumberjacks and early settlers. Throughout its history, this once lively community has become a place of unsolved mysteries, two bank robberies, a bizarre train derailment and multiple wildfires.
