As a young mother I joined Y-Women –a national YW program that impacted my life for the rest of my life! Now as a retired grandmother of six, I volunteer at the West Valley Senior Center to help seniors help themselves. I personally must live up to my mantra to the seniors – Get up, get dressed and get out! As a volunteer, I definitely learned the value of socialization, my nutrition has improved, and it has really helped my mental health to remain active and helpful. I look forward to going every day and helping with whatever I can.
