If you ever want to just plain enjoy a conversation, sit down with Greg Reigstad and Marlyn Beaudine. I recently had that opportunity.
Marlyn, now in his late 70’s, is still building ramps for people to be able to access their own homes and fixing basic plumbing for older people who live on very little and want to stay in their own homes as long as they can. Greg tells about all the volunteers who come forward to help – fixing doorknobs and dryer vets.
They have been volunteering for the Chore Club for years – totally volunteer run and driven. They have helped over 200 people last year.
These are amazing men and they team up with other people who just want to help in very practical ways. They do it because they know it is the right thing to do. I applaud each of you.
