Carol says that volunteering has fed her sense of adventure, while making her feel good that she is helping; and it has also put her in touch with interesting people she wouldnt have met otherwise.
Now retired, she joined RSVP hoping meet new people under calmer circumstances. Her favorite RSVP experience so far has been volunteering at The Family Support Center, where she got to put her former management experience to use, while working at their overnight shelter. Carol urges everyone to volunteer, especially after retirement. Dont sit home. There are dozens of things to do. If one doesnt turn out then try another, she says.
