This month we’d like to give extra special thanks to one of our Trip Volunteers. Dianne Kassotis. Dianne is one of our Trip Office volunteers. She used to work once a week helping members plan trips to local and exotic places. However, when our Trip Coordinator went out temporarily with an injury, Dianne stepped up and took over. Now Dianne comes in 5 days a week to plan trips, coordinate, check the books, and help out the other Trip volunteers. Dianne has been a member for a couple years after hearing about us from the Trip Coordinator, Linda Brian. She had heard Linda talking about the center to a friend and asked her questions about the center. Dianne was looking for someplace to go and help people, and we are always in need of people wanting to help others. It was a perfect fit. Outside the Trip Office she can always be found helping out in the dining room. From Koffee Klub to Thanksgiving to Operation Senior Claus to just about any Special Event. She is always willing to help set up, serve, and clean up. Her favorite thing to do though is to root for the Dallas Cowboys. Originally from Danvers, MA, she lived there until she met Jim, her future husband, who was just in town on leave following his Navy bootcamp. Married three months later, she moved around as a military wife, finally ending up in Florida. Together they had 4 kids, 9 grand kids, and 13 great grandkids. Following Jim’s passing, she moved out to the Highland area, and shortly thereafter, found her way to us. Thanks Dianne for seeking us out to help others.
