The key to our success rests in our volunteers who embody the spirit of greatness by saying, "Yes I can, and so can you!" Thank you so much for your hard work. We could never have asked for more dedicated volunteers, and we cannot express how grateful we are to have you here!
Mary has been volunteering at the Senior Center for two years. She enjoys volunteering in the Gift Shop because it gives her the chance to visit with Senior Center visitors. When Mary is not at the Senior Center, she enjoys doing puzzles, knitting, watching the Game Show Channel and going to bingo. Mary received her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Dickinson State University and taught for two years in Sidney, MT and another two years in Bismarck. She started doing daycare in 1977 and continued that career for 38 years. Mary has two daughters, one granddog and a bestfriend dog named "Greta". Mary comes to the Center for the meals and to socialize. The staff is super nice and makes her feel welcome!
Robin has been delivering meals for the Senior Center since August of 2016. When she is not delivering meals, she enjoys traveling to see family, crocheting, walking and reading. Robin has worked in various office settings for 40 years with 32 of them being with the State of North Dakota. She has also volunteered at other organizations over the years. After she retired, she wanted to be active while "paying it forward" to those organizations that had allowed her to grow professionally and also assisted her or her family. She and Allen have been married for almost 36 years and have two daughters, five granddaughters and a very special granddog. She started volunteering to give back to an in-home service provider with the intent to meet new people, that she possibly could end up getting emotionally involved with. She has not been disappointed!
