Courtesy of UHC: Volunteer your time. Giving back to your community can be very rewarding. In one recent study, a whopping 94% of people reported that volunteering lifted their mood. And that's not all. More than three-quarters also said that volunteering made them feel healthier overall. So when you help others, you just might help yourself too.

Are you ready, willing and able to give yourself to a good cause? Tell me about your experience and skills and I'll tell you how we can best apply them to the TJHS Class of '61 and our goals. A rewarding volunteer job may be in your immediate future. Email TJHS1961@aol.com
