What have you done in the past as volunteer work?

I moved to Holliston in 1991 and joined the Newcomers Club. I became an active member of the club, co-chairing the craft fair and eventually Vice President and President of the club over the years. Also a very active member of my church (First Congregational of Holliston). 

I also became involved with Celebrate Holliston, initially the field day, then co-chairing the event for 5 years. For the past 17 years I coordinated the food tent. As a registered nurse, over the years I have volunteered at the town’s free flu clinic.

What do you currently do as a volunteer?

Most recently I have co-chaired Holliston in Bloom, a town beautification project and just joined the garden club.

What made you want to get involved in volunteering?

I initially starting volunteering to meet people in town but quickly found out that I really enjoyed giving back to such a great town, you get more back than you give.

What is your favorite part of volunteering?

I enjoy being a positive influence on our town and sharing my time and gifts. I am lucky to live in such a great community and enjoy giving back to Holliston.
