Sharing Time Together

Senior Companions - Grand Traverse County

Senior Companion, Jean, from Senior Volunteer Programs of Northwest Michigan spent the day with her client, MaryAnn (who used to be a volunteer) and had a great time together recently at the G.T. Butterfly House & Bug Zoo. They even had butterflies landing on them!.
This is such a wonderful sight to see when our programs have volunteers who have given so much and end up with a volunteer to make their lives more fulfilling after they retire. Thank you, MaryAnn for your service and thank you, Jean, for your continued service of giving back to someone who meant so much to your program. It is a beautiful thing!
