Cape & Islands United Way – Volunteer
Judy (an ordained minister) and I (community service worker) became fulltime residents in Dennis in 2005, where our 5 children, their spouses and our 10 grandchildren love to visit. After retiring from full-time professions we have found plenty of opportunities on the Cape to be involved in interesting work. For me that includes serving on the CIUW Community Needs Committee in 2008. My 45 years in social service organizations included nearly 30 years with the United Way, focusing on assessment of financial and program operations of organizations supported by United Way grants (Akron OH, Pittsburgh PA and 17 years in Boston).
