Volunteer Service Day

It was a coincidence that my high school Alumni Challenge Basketball game fell during Nat'l Volunteer Week.
So I'm off today performing service for others; the K-6 school where I use to work and of course this evening, the best basketball venue out there.

I am fortunate that the company I work for offers 8 hours PAID per year for Volunteer Service. It's a shame that a lot of my co-workers do not take advantage of it.
Give me a kid and a book any day! This love of reading to/with children came from my childhood love of reading and taking on the charachter's accents, mannerisms, etc.
It's where my dream of drama exists. It's why when my own daughter was small, it would not do to just read the words on a page from her favorite story...oh no...I had to BE the charachter, too...no matter how tired I was from the working, cooking, cleaning.
And it was just fine with me.

If you have the day to give, visit this website for ideas on how to serve for
Nat'l Volunteer Week

Have a great service day!

Good for you, Terri!!

I have to tell you, when my kids were little and I tried to "be the characters" they told me to "read it right, Mommy!" Guess acting was never in my genes! LOL
