I do a few things; right now, I teach English as a second language to adult newcomers to the country. I’ve been doing that, on and off, for a long time. Previously, I volunteered at the Cross Cancer Institute with young children, and a number of other places. I’m semi-retired, and I’ve been here for a number of years, so I like to give back to my community. It keeps me occupied and I feel good when helping other people. Volunteering provides people with skills, knowledge, willingness, and desire to get out there and help other people. By doing these things I feel like I’m making a valuable contribution to the community I call home!
