Everyone seems to think I have all the time in the world now

Hey, I'm retired. But I'm still busy, busier than ever, it seems, with my church, my community library and several other organizations.
But people keep asking me to do more and more, "because you've retired, so we know you have time now." No, I don't.
But how do I say no without making people mad and seeming uncaring? I'd welcome any suggestions.
