I told you last week I was given an award for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Leadership’ for my volunteer work in my community. Here is a memory of that night.
I have been a volunteer for numerous organizations since the age of 18. I taught the elderly how to exercise in wheelchairs. I volunteered for years (up until I got pregnant) in the Emergency Department at the local hospital, bringing warm blankets to patients, or showing a fearful wife whose husband just had a heart attack, what room she can find him in. I have organized business cocktails, women’s luncheon’s, galas, mentored entrepreneurs, and worked with mentally ill children in the psychiatric ward at the hospital.
