We were newly retired in 1992, sitting in the Deer Head Inn on a WEEKNIGHT!!!! Should we stay for the last set? Why not--we don't have to get up in the morning!!! It was a defining moment, it was REAL, not just a vacation. Susan Bradford, then a board member of COTA, was waiting tables, and we asked her what you had to do to volunteer. We went to the next meeting, and haven't missed many since. It has been an occasional "pain in the arse," but mostly wonderful fun--especially 2003, when we were honored to receive the "Joanne Mayer Volunteer Award." Every year we say, "This was the best one yet."
