May is Older Americans Month. The theme this year is “Make Your Mark.” The theme was selected to encourage and celebrate countless contributions that older adults make to our communities. Their time, experience, and talents benefit family, peers, and neighbors every day. We are concluding our stories this week of ALSM residents and program participants.

Meet Dick Wolf a resident on the campus of The Oaks at Pleasant Gap.

Dick is an active volunteer throughout Centre County. He began his volunteer service at Mount Nittany Medical Center in 1985. Through the years, he has volunteered in many areas including the emergency and same day surgery departments and front desk. Currently (before Covid-19 and hopefully again soon) he volunteers as a cashier at the Nittany Grill in the hospital and as a front desk agent at the new cardiovascular center at Mount Nittany. Dick has given more than 25,000 hours of volunteer service to the hospital!

He became a member of RSVP (Retired and Senior Volunteer program) in 1987 and has volunteered with the American Cancer Society and just recently retired from volunteering for Meals on Wheels offered through the Centre County Office of Aging. Dick also volunteers with the American Red Cross. He shared the reason for his service, “I love to feel useful, help people and make a difference in the lives of people that need it.”

Thank you Dick for giving so much of yourself to others and the community!

May is Older Americans Month. The theme this year is “Make Your Mark.” The theme was selected to encourage and celebrate countless contributions that older adults make to our communities. Their time, experience, and talents benefit family, peers, and neighbors every day. Over the next two weeks, we will be sharing stories of ALSM residents and program participants.

Meet Clyde Black, a resident on the campus of The Lutheran Home at Hollidaysburg.

Earlier this spring Clyde “Made His Mark” on a class of 5th grade students from Penn-Mont Academy. Clyde shared not only his time with the children but educated them on the career opportunities of an author and illustrator. Clyde, a retired attorney, read the book “Blue Ethel” that was written and illustrated by his daughter Jennifer Black Reinhardt. He shared information about her profession and answered questions. Clyde concluded with presenting several of his daughter’s books to the Penn-Mont students for their classroom. Thank you for educating the community and sharing your daughter’s talent!
