Volunteerism is a highly held Bow Mar value.

Elected volunteers form the Town government composed of our Mayor and six Trustees. Municipal elections for Mayor and the Board of Trustees are held the first Tuesday in April every even year. The Town government is supported by the Town Clerk.

Other boards are also composed of resident volunteers and include:

Bow Mar Foundation
Bow Mar Owners, Inc - BMOI
Design Review Board
Patrick Bennet Reservoir Co Inc
Joseph Bowles Reservoir Co
Bow Mar Water and Sanitation

Volunteerism is seen in numerous other activities - members of more than half the households in Town actively volunteer to benefit the Bow Mar community.
