This month we welcome our newest club member, Mary. Mary was born and raised in Mexico and was one of 14 siblings. As a young child she worked on the family ranch and helped take care of her younger siblings. Mary moved to the United States when she was a young bride and she worked as a registered nurse at the California Men’s Colony. Since retiring, Mary has traveled the world, but what she enjoys most is helping others and volunteering at non-profits. When Mary was diagnosed with dementia, her granddaughter sought out the Adult Day Center as an opportunity for her grandmother to socialize, but what intrigued Mary was the opportunity to volunteer and to help “the old people”.
