Volunteers are the Heartbeat of

**Volunteers ** Volunteers **

Volunteers are the heartbeat of the Southside Senior & Community Center. Thank you to all who give so generously of your time, energy and talent. We could not operate the Center without all of these fabulous volunteers. Each year they give between 12,000 and 25,000 hours to the Center. 

THIS is what makes Southside Senior & Community Center
place to be, to have fun, to meet great people, to be active, to volunteer.

 Front Desk Ambassador and busy volunteer, Shelline Totten, brings her special smile and personality to the Center every week. Come on in and say 'hi' someday.










 Front Desk Ambassadors Phyllis Williams (left) and Mary Nofsinger -- and the many, many other volunteers who make this Center 'work' -- extol the whole attitude and atmosphere. They work the Friday morning shift, if you want to come in and say 'hi' someday.

Tuesday, June 4: Southside volunteers lend a hand with KSPS programming fund drive

On an early June evening, 13 Southside volunteers hopped in the center's van for the short drive up Regal to KSPS where they donned headphones, picked up pens and paper, and staffed the phonelines during the public TV station's programming fund drive. They had a great time . . . and handled orders for a good number of donations during two programs -- the Italian singing group, Ilvolo, and 'Barbra Streisand: One Night Only at the Village Vanguard.' On duty that night were (back row, from left) Denise Fanazick, Marnie McCoy, Lisa Rosier, Jean Haidle, Florence Haidle, Janette Lippincott, Margaret Nelson and Jean Porter; (front row, from left) Jessie Quincy, Barbara Haynes, Jim VanderMeer, Marge Kidd and Bonnie McDade.





Volunteer opportunities are numerous here

As our busy summer winds down and we head into fall, Center activities, special events, fundraisers, dinners and luncheons, and housekeeping are all forefront on our collective agendas. When we say that 'Volunteers are the heartbeat of the Center' -- we mean it!!!
