Salute To Seniors: Retired Nurse Allison Williams Stays Active
HOM and American Senior Magazine are saluting seniors who have given back to the New England community. This week, we want to salute Allison Williams, who was nominated by her granddaughter, Andrea Daney.
"My grandmother deserves to be nominated for numerous reasons. My grandmother is a retired nurse. She is in her mid 80s and still regularly volunteers at the Red Cross Blood Bank. My grandmother is also a master gardener and donates her time to help weed gardens for people who cannot. She has been a huge part of the community in Alfred, Maine for over 50 years. My grandparents have been part of the Alfred Parish Church since they came to Alfred, bringing up their 3 children, 2 grandchildren, and great-grandchildren in this church. They have volunteered their time teaching Sunday School, and participated in Alfred Festival Day, bean suppers, VBS and so much more. They helped open, and still to this day, help maintain and manage the museum in Alfred. They're also part of the Historical Society committee. Every week, my grandparents go to different local nursing homes and volunteer their time. My grandfather plays the auto-harp and my grandmother helps and sings. These two amaze me. I honestly could not ask for better grandparents!"
Each week, HOM will be featuring a different senior who has made New England a better place to live. Nominate a special senior in your life to tell their story. They can be a relative, friend, neighbor or someone else you know. You can even nominate yourself.
