The Aging Resource Center desperately needs additional volunteer drivers, right now! They are in a lose-lose situation of having to turn down requests from older folks who need transportation. The needs are varied -- doctors, dentists, chiropractors, dialysis, surgery, etc. That is a partial list of which I personally have transported and is certainly not a complete list.

I mentioned in an earlier column Gloria Bailey, a sight handicapped lady, that I bring in from Stardust each day to do finish sanding at the Superior Vocational Center. I've been providing rides for seven years now and have found it very beneficial in my retirement years.

It gives me something to do, a purpose, which is extremely important for physical and mental health -- my coffee group buddies will have something smart to say about that mental part. But it truly is important to have something to do and especially to help good people who need and appreciate the service.

Brad Beckman heads the Aging Resource Center office in Superior and would be most happy to answer any questions that you might have about helping us out. The telephone there is 394-3611.

I can tell you this much. You will have a gas reimbursement and will only need to work when, how often and as much as you agree to do.
