Day 15: finding a cause and taking action

I had the wonderful opportunity yesterday morning to spend a couple of hours with these two incredible woman.

Like me, these two are passionate about senior advocacy.

Diane has been serving seniors in Eudora since she was 21 and my heart was full when I heard all that she has done and continues to do. Right now she leads the senior exercise classes at the Eudora Rec Center and has created a supportive and loving community for so many Eudora seniors.

Ruth was our first and only female mayor in Eudora and continues to serve on the City Commission. She is the voice for our seniors and I am inspired everyday by her energy and enthusiasm.

I am very much drawn to people who take time to serve their community. Some of my happiest moments have been serving this community and I am not planning on slowing down anytime soon!
