This is probably my favorite among the jobs I have had. Before coming to Southlake, I worked with the Girl Scouts and that was a lot of fun, too. It is definitely a close second, but I really believe working with the seniors and with individuals who have disabilities is my all time favorite.
Something different happens every day around here and nothing is ever monotonous or mundane. You may be having a ho hum day and someone will walk through the day who just makes you smile from the inside out. That's what makes it all worthwhile.
The people from MMOW are in charge that day, but Lynn is really good about recruiting volunteers within the center. If you even look like you might be thinking about being bored, she will give you something to do.
Occasionally I have to play peace keeper if someone accidentally touches someone else's cards. That is a no no
Seniors and individuals with special needs are the two most under represented groups in the country. That is one of the reasons I enjoy working with both groups. That and the fact that they are so receptive to new activities and they are just so much fun to be with.
