I volunteer at the food pantry. At one time I found myself using the food pantry but once I was able to get back on my feet I started volunteering there.

I taught swimming and served as a life guard for the Red Cross in Callaway County in the early 60's and now my grandchildren are taking Red Cross swimming lessons. I am proud of the number of children and adults in Callaway that know how to swim. Some of my former students still swim and they are in their 80's. Nancy McCue
