Volunteer to give others a respite

<p>I have heard it said that volunteers make the world go around. As I think of my days, and how much of them are taken up volunteering for something or another, I am beginning to think that is right. For some reason, I am the type of person when someone asks for a volunteer, I forget to keep my hand down.</p><p>For the most part it is a good thing, as I have a good feeling when I volunteer for something I care about, and can see some results. Other times, I can't see the results, and it can get frustrating.

No sick days

<p>I'm dealing with the worst cold I think I've ever had. In addition to the regular sneezing, stuffy nose and bleary, watery eyes, the night coughing is keeping me awake. The combination of a cold, plus sleep deprivation, equals an exhaustive lack of energy.</p><p>One night, I had moved to the recliner in the living room and Molly must have heard me coughing. She came down from upstairs and I thought she needed to go out. She walked over to me and sighing, rested her chin on my arm.

Monthly meal brings community together

What began as a Christmas dinner in 2010 has evolved into a monthly community meal at First Presbyterian Church in Shawano.

"Anybody that wants to come and eat and share is welcome," said Angie Wilber, one of the meal's original organizers. "It's nice opportunity for people to come and break down those social and economic boundaries."

The free dinner is served at 5:30 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of every month at the church. Meals have been provided by area church groups.
