'Spotlight' on KEET Volunteers

Photo of 3 senior volunteersPhoto of senior volunteer


One particularly dedicated group of volunteers the past decaude or so has included (above left) Helen Furber, Opal Cantrell, Rosa Figler, Elnore Maunder (right) and others who have collectively labeled more than one-half million Spotlight program guides. They meet each other once each month at the Eureka Senior Center for coffee and donuts -- and then they get busy. If you drop by to meet them one day, you'll hear the latest jokes and posssibly a political conversation or two. But if you stay long, you'll likely be put to work! Robert Bruce (below) diligently addresses and stuffs envelopes for our membership drives. Our sincerest thanks goes out to all the fine senior colunteers who have helped KEET in its mission.
