Barbara – Age 68

“Once I packed up work I wasn’t getting any outside conversationso I was going stir crazy. I couldn’t sit indoors and do nothing so I came here to volunteer, it gets me out and if we can produce a smile on someone’s face I know we have won.”

We moved here in 1976 and we still live here, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. We don’t want anyone not to come (to The Bevy events) because they can’t afford it, because this might be the only people they see all week. I had to do something, I couldn’t sit indoors and do nothing, I look at the dust and think I’ll dust tomorrow!
