to be a part of the Senior Center As I have said many times the Board is a working board and each person will be asked to take on pro jects and responsibilities It is the only way our Cen ter will work Committees will be formed during the upcoming year headed by one of the trustee members Some persons from the Foundation membershipatlarge current members will be asked to participate and we hope you will accept It is great to get involved and to learn more about your Center its activities and its services You may volunteer to help in any category you like Building Mainte nance Bingo Thrift Shop Food Ser vices HomeDelivered Meals Wurstfcst Fair Parade Creations Library Finance Ways and Means Expansion Reception Hospitality Van Drivers LongRange Planning and Grant those are just the regulars Many special needs come up every day If you volunteer to help on some of these pro jects you will get in touch and you will meet people In fact you may like it so much that you could be elected to the Board of Trustees in the future Then when you object to some of the procedures and prac tices you can talk it up and vote it out All types of personalities work and fit in at the Cen ter For example there are the Quiet John Fahsl works quietly and behind the scenes and a lot of people dont realize all he is doing He and his wife Elaine work Bingo on Tuesdays They organize coordinate and run the Coed Bridge John volunteers to study and research and this year he organized and promoted participation in the Fair Parade Currently he is researching a plan for pre ventive maintenance and is working on inventories Elaine nd John you are greatly appreciated They go about their work quietly and never complain Another quiet one is Elinor Wells She manages the Club so beautifully and gives so much of her time Other quiet ones who contribute so much to the Centers operation on a regular basis and do not receive enough accolades are Marge Miller Muriel Mooney and Lynn Burr One that is not so quiet but is worth her weight in gold is Emily Rid ing who is currently managing the Thrift Shop Now her counterpart Arlene Scheer who was her comanager is a quiet one but she did volunteer for most everything Unfortunately Arlene has tem porarily retired from volunteerism due to family ill ness Thanks Arlene and hurry back What would we do without these valuable sung and unsung More quiet ones are Kenneth Triesch Darvin Altenhoff Virginia Booth Iris Schlather Goldy Nowotny Feme Hooker and Ann so valuable to us Our esteemed Clifford Wilson is a qui et one And then there is Alfred Brueckner who is somewhere inbetween I think of myself as an in between Correct me if Im wrong Then we have the really loud ones who do so much but make a lot of noise like John Bowers Jean and Jim Cooney Minnie and Al Bickham Dave Hochanadel Frank Wisemann and Bob Big gers As for the staff Gladys Bartling is a quiet one and Irene Ronan is a quiet one but Shirley and Susan and David make up for all that by being pretty noisy Its all a lot of fun Anyway loud or quiet the Center loves you all Just keep on doing whatever you are doing We like it Gladys Bartling receives the Glass Hammer Award for this month She purchased 75 Sesquicentennial aprons and so far only three have been sold They are green and white with the Comal County Senior Cit izens Center logo on them and the slogan Over the Hill and Working Maybe some of you will help her out of her dilemma by purchasing an apron and help the Sesquicentennial committee at the same time She is also standing there with many Sesquicentennial lapel pins Wont some one feel sorry for her Marie Dawson is a guest columnist for the Her aldZeitung writing exclusively for and about the Comal County Senior Citizens Oldtime values
