Resolve to volunteer time to others
In a community of our size where a significant percentage of the population are natives and graduates of local schools, there are former school teachers or out-of-town classmates’ parents who are now residents of local assisted living or nursing home facilities.
Just being remembered by those other than immediate family is undoubtedly one of the most rewarding events of those residents’ daily lives.
However, on a broader scope there are organizations which would welcome the help of more volunteers. These structured opportunities exist in many fields of interest.
