Judy Peterson, at 75, received the 2018 Outstanding Senior Award at the Minnesota State Fair, not just for one volunteering effort, not even for two or three. Oh, no – the list of Judy’s regular volunteering activities is far more impressive. Judy visits patients at Itasca Hospice, oversees the receptionist volunteers at Itasca County Tax Aide, directs ElderCircle’s free grocery shopping and delivery program, helps coordinate food distribution to families in need with Ruby’s Pantry, serves with Habitat for Humanity, Open Door Coat Rack and more. She’s hoping to add volunteering as an usher volunteer at the Reif Performing Arts Center in Grand Rapids. Judy says her ongoing commitment to volunteering gives her a sense of purpose and of belonging, as well as friendships. This after raising her three children, and a career in the medical support field; as a medical transcriptionist, medical secretary, and manager of a medical equipment company. The title “Outstanding” certainly fits!

Sarah Yerkes, at 101, published her first book of poems, “Days of Blue and Flame,” (Passager Books, University of Baltimore), having begun her foray into the literary world at 90 years young! Sarah started out as an architect, became a landscape designer, and in her 50s, took up sculpting–all the while married and raising her 4 children (one of whom passed away from leukemia at age 5). A chance encounter led to her attending a poetry writing class, which so intrigued her that she stuck with it, and voila! Some 10 years later, her first published work. Congratulations, Sarah!
