This month we’d like to give extra special thanks to Dianne Kassotis, our Trip Office Coordinator. Dianne has been a member for a couple years after hearing about us from the former Trip Coordinator. Dianne asked questions about the center as she was looking for someplace to go and help people. Well we are always looking for people wanting to help out so we were a perfect match. She started out working once a week helping members plan trips to local and exotic places. However, when the Trip Coordinator went out 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. 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. 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, 13 grand kids, and are working on their 17th great grandkid! 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.
