Life is better when we make a new friend!

If you loved Jack Benny, Lawrence Welk, big band music, 'clean comedy' and old fashioned values this is a great opportunity for you to do some hands-on local volunteer work while connecting with a neighbor. This 78 year old fellow likes to get out and enjoy music, bowling, bingo and other activities but he needs a guide to accompany him due to blindness. This retired gent worked retail grocery and at the post office, he loves to go to restaurants, Captain's cove and other places. He likes music and might also like to transfer old vinyl to newer media but you should have your own equipment for that.

Requirements to be a great volunteer include:

  • a desire to help others;
  • a pleasant demeanor;
  • a good reading/speaking voice;
  • average reading skills;
  • organizational or planning abilities;
  • a good driving record;
  • a clear criminal history;
  • two references
  • access to a car with proof of insurance; a minimum of $50/100k liability and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
