We love meeting new people and we love volunteering – it’s fun! We get to use skills we developed before we retired and we get to do things we’ve never tried before. Volunteering has become a part of our social life and we have met some very close friends. We’re lucky to be healthy and energetic, so we choose to give back. Volunteering is easy. Do something you’re passionate about – help a neighbour or get involved in something with greater community impact. But, bide your time; be picky about what you choose – if you don’t like what you are doing as a volunteer, it will show!
