Now known as the AINC, I started reading the Rocky Mountain News about 12 years ago live on the Radio Reading Service of the Rockies. A partner and I did this weekly for 10 years until he retired. Now I record the New York Times Magazine which I thorougly enjoy. Because it is an hour of reading, I strive to use voice and pacing variety to generate interest. Working with the staff, (Kat, Paul, David, Pam, regina and others) is pure fun and pleasure. I truly hope that sight impaired listeners are informed and entertained just as much as I am while I read.

My mother was no longer able to read her local Ft Collins paper anymore due to her diabetes. When I heard how much she enjoyed the service, I volunteered to read for them as well. Been going on three years now. They do great work and the organization is run by dedicated individuals.

Several years ago I saw a very small print ad in the local paper asking for volunteers to read for the Radio Reading Service of the Rockies. It was so small that you could easily overlook it. I called the number and before you knew it I was in a recording room reading news about the western slope to be aired later that day. I continued this weekly routine, not knowing exactly what I was really a part of, but that it was all for good. I know how important radio news is to me, I listen to national and local news on the radio all the time. Imagine how important this is for the visually impaired ! Little did I know what a great organization I was a part of. Everyone who works so hard to bring this service to life is a person of great heart and intelligence. My life is enriched just knowing them and seeing them once a week. The army of volunteers also bears proof that this organization is a terrific service for the community. I am grateful that I could read a humble newspaper ad that brought me to this group. Now maybe someone else can listen to my humble readings and find new connections in their journey as well.

This friendly and welcoming organization is a pleasure to volunteer for; as the staff provide such a warm and wonderfully supportive environment. I just know that they appreciate my time and always make me feel like I am doing something special each week reading the news on the air. When I first started volunteering, I wanted to provide a service, but 'working' for AIN of CO has been a gift of friendship from those I've met. It makes me feel really good inside to be a part of this team and to know that my voice is making a difference in people's lives.

I don't think I've been volunteering for long enough to notice changes over time. I've been here roughly two months.
