This month we’d like to shine the light on some familiar faces around here. Mike & Sharon Pierce are a mix of new and old to the center. Sharon has been a member since 2010, while Mike joined in 2018. Before the shutdown, Mike was wearing several hats, working in the Trip Office and working in the Nutrition Program two days a week. They both also enjoy working at our special events, and were first time drivers for our Operation Senior Cause. During the shutdown they’ve both have been volunteering in the Thrift Store as well as serving as Transportation Assistance Program drivers. Mike and Sharon are both from the area. Sharon was born in Boston, but came out here when she was three. Mike on the other hand was born and raised out here. They met on a blind date when she was 18, and he was 22. They were married 6 weeks later! Together they have two kids and five grandchildren. He worked for Fedco and retired from Beaver Medical for over 20 years each whereas she worked for the same mortgage company. We would like to thank the Mike and Sharon for their ongoing dedication to the center and its members during these troubling days.

Featured Activity

We are looking for a volunteer for one of the easiest mechanic jobs ever! No spanners, floor jacks, or torque wrenches needed. However, knowing the difference between a dip stick and stick shift is desirable. All we are looking for is someone to come in at least once a week to check our vehicles. Just like the full service of old, check the tire pressure, fluid levels, note any dings, etc. If it helps we will even get you a star and we will trust our car to the man who wears the star. (If you find that sexist please send any complaints to Texaco and date it 30 years ago)
