Peter McIntosh – Charlottesville Resident for 41 years.
Tell us about your volunteer activities.
I served of the JMRL Board of Trustees, from 1980 through 1992, and again from 2010 to the present. I also have served on the Friends of the Library from 1992 to the present. I have been on the Board of the McIntire Botanical Garden from its founding in 2008 to the present. I also serve on the Fundraising Advisory Committee of the Legal Aid Justice Committee
What inspires you to volunteer?
It’s fun, if you make it that way. A former fellow Board member once said she’d never serve on a Board that didn’t provides laughs and smiles as well as good work and result for the community
If your volunteer work could make one long-lasting change, what would you want it to be?
Convince more people that we really live in one community
What is a little-known fact about you?
I’m in the William and Mary Sports Hall of Fame.
What brought you to Charlottesville/Albemarle County?
I came here for a job in the local Legal Aid office after law school and a 5 month trip around the country in a large Dodge van with my wife and 110 lb German Shepherd. It was a small town then with a drive in theater right where Kroger on Hydraulic sits today.
