  • I was recently approached about answering the question, “Why do you volunteer”? I don’t have a definitive answer to the question or perhaps there are many answers. I will give some responses and let you decide.

    I was raised by parents with a giving spirit. My mother was a 4-H leader, a homemaker’s demonstration was given in our home trying to get the organization started, and my father was active in Farm Bureau, the county fair and served as monitor of our little country school. Many teachers lived with my family while teaching at Kennady School.

    I would like to pose a question to LaRue Countians: How willing should we be to help those who are hurting? Maybe it’s someone at work, a neighbor, a friend or someone in our own family. I’m sure we all try to help someone in need. Here at the nursing home volunteers try to help residents enjoy life even more than they normally would. We as volunteers would like to invite you to join us in helping those who are hurting.
