Lately, aside from my work with the "COA" (Cheeseball Overaters Anonymous ;-) kidding!) I haven't been as involved, but one thing we enjoy doing as a family is accompanying VC to his various volunteer jugging gigs. Last Friday, I took him to a local Assisted Living facility and he put on a show for the seniors, complete with a ragtime soundtrack. He does many of these types of volunteer opportunities throughout the year and it gets him and us out into the community and definitely puts a smile on people's faces. Jack the Clown Dog was even impressed!
One thing that I want to improve on in 2009 is to find a "cause" to get behind. If there is a cause or group that you support that you think might be a good fit for me, please leave me a comment about what brought you to the cause and why you enjoy volunteering your time with this particular group.
