When I retired from teaching mathematics at Healdsburg High School, I had the time to help some of the many worthwhile volunteer organizations operating in this area. I joined the Men’s Garden Club of Santa Rosa. In addition to learning a lot about plants and gardening, members help raise scholarship funds for graduating high school seniors and continuing college students. Joining the other volunteers at F. I. S. H. allows me to provide help to people in need as well as work with a wonderful group of energetic and caring people. I have been pleased to find that volunteering offers personal benefits and satisfaction as well as the opportunity to help the community in which we live.
