“I’m bored,” and “I have nothing to do.” These are two statements I very rarely use since I joined Good Neighbours ten years ago. I have become useful as a volunteer and fitter with the exercise programs I enjoy. I have learned new and fun things. Best of all, I have made good friends. You simply have to come here and find the programs that make you happy...-Gloria F.
