Volunteers & Volunteer Opportunities

Awaken your passions and your heart by volunteering for something that is meaningful to you.  We are all busy people. We often have jobs, families and obligations to tend to. You are volunteering on your own time, but be sure to not overextend yourself to the extent that you will let someone down or not fulfill expectations. Do something that matters. You are choosing to use time to work for something. Be sure to give it your best shot! 

 This month in honor of National Quilting Day we are spotlighting the
Center’s very own quiltmakers – the Loose Thread Quilters.

Volunteer Spotlight A Star is Born

The ladies of Loose Thread Quilters have been active volunteers at the Senior Center 
since it opened in 2001.

They meet every Tuesday and Thursday morning 
from 9 am – 12 noon. The Senior Center has been fortunate to have many area quilters donate

100% cotton fabric for the volunteers to use in crafting beautiful 
merchandise that they display for sale in the hallway and quilt room. Some 
of the merchandise includes: custom ordered quilts, baby quilts, lap quilts, 
wall hangings microwave bowls, place mats, table toppers, hot pads, mug 
rugs, dish scrubbies, and more. The ladies offer hand quilting for individuals 
that need their quilt tops completed. All the proceeds from this project go to the Senior Center and thanks to generous donations and the volunteers they have been able to donate nearly $50,000 to the center since their beginning. Charter members since 2001 
are Ellie Shurts, Susan Furnas and Kay Tricky; other current members are 
Mary Moxham, Marion Pollard, Joyce Thompson, and Judith Fowler. Thank you Loose Thread Quilters for all the beauty you add to our world through your wonderful creations. We are very grateful you are a part of our Center!!!
