It’s ironic how I started volunteering at West End Seniors. My wife was already volunteering there as the senior fitness instructor. Coincidentally, the President of the Board at the time was a former employee from my working days. The centre was setting up a planning committee and they asked me to help out. It was work I had done before, so I joined in. Now I do just about anything to do with maintenance along with one other volunteer. It’s something to get up in the morning for. If you’re starting out volunteering, try and tag along with someone else who’s already doing volunteer work.
