This issue, I wouldlike to talk about avital part of ourorganization--”OurVolunteers”. Whatis the definition of avolunteer?According toWikipedia avolunteer is a personworking on behalf of others or a particular cause without payment fortheir time and services. What drives us to volunteer?Most of us would say that volunteering makes us feelgood; some would say they volunteer for their ownpersonal development, to meet others or make contacts, possible employment or to just have fun. We all haveour reasons. How many of you can remember the firsttime you volunteered? For many of us becoming avolunteer is something that just happened by chance. Itis human nature to want to help others. At Berkeley Senior Services we are blessed to havethe best volunteers. Most non-profits depend onvolunteers to operate their organization to carry outtheir mission. Whether it’s delivering a meal, attending a board meeting or helping to teach a class, we try to track all volunteer hours at the center. Wehave on average every year 8,500 volunteer hours. This equates to four full-time employees. The currentvalue of a volunteer hour is over $21.00 per hour. Ourvolunteers save us over $170,000 a year. In the non- profit sector $170,000 easily covers four full timesalaries. We are extremely grateful for each and everyone of our volunteers. On May 18th, we will be hosting our annual volunteerbreakfast and recognizing those who give so much toour organization. I would like to extend my thanks toall of the volunteers who support Berkeley SeniorServices. Because of your willingness and dedication, we are able to provide services to so many seniors. Please join us and help us recognize those who trulymake a difference!If you are looking for ways to give back to yourcommunity, we always have openings at BerkeleySenior Services. Whether it is delivering a meal, dancing at a birthday bash or offering to teach a class, we always have room for more volunteers. Remembermy challenge, 
“Get involved with a senior and make adifference to someone who has made a difference for you!”  Jen Stanley  Board President 
I remember as a child, when feelingdiscouraged and wishingfor things to be better, my mom would say “if wishes were horses, thenbeggars would ride.” Irecently read aninspiriting quote fromJimmy Dean, the famouscountry singer andaccomplished businessman, who diedlast year at the age of 82. He said “I can’t change the direction of the wind but Ican adjust my sails to reach my destination.” Whatgreat gems of advice for us to follow. Thanks to the wonderful World Wide Web, I foundmany examples of folks, who accomplished much intheir latter years. Here are just a few of those examples: Grandma Moses was still painting at age 100.  At 93, George Bernard Shaw wrote the play FarfetchedFables.  At 91, Eamon de Valera served as the president of Ireland.  At 90, Pablo Picasso was still creating drawings andengravings.  George Burns won an Academy Award at age 80.  Bill Anderson celebrated his 81st birthday by taking a2,000 mile bike ride in 14 days, averaging over 130miles per day.  At age 91, Lucille Borger won the National Water SkiChampionship. An important key to staying happy and healthy is tostay active and engaged, pursue goals and follow ourdreams. Like the song in the musical South Pacific, 
“Happy Talk, Keep Talkin”
“if you don’t have adream, how are you gonna make a dream come true?”
So it is time to set sail...or jump on our horse andpursue our dreams. Denver Bronco and former HeismanTrophy winner, Tim Tebow, stated, “Take action andfinish strong-the time to do it is now!”Let us help you accomplish your goals. At theSenior Center, you can participate in daily exercise, wellness and social activities. You may learn newskills, enjoy lunch and make new friends. We can helpyou find resources and provide transportation and In- Home Care to keep you active, independent and happilypursuing your personal goals.
