I was surprised that volunteering wasn't listed as a hobby for retirees. I have never been bored or without something to do.

I volunteer for hospice where I visit a patient once a week, I work one day a month at the soup kitchen with my mission circle at church and I have found some sites on line that list seniors and other sick or shut in people to send cars to.

RETIREMENT: more perspective on volunteerism
by: Jack

Here are a few great (brief) stories of people who have received a lot back in return for their efforts to help others ? http://www.ahamoment.com/pg/voting?moment=gaavj ? check them out, and click to vote for any or all of them, as the top vote-getters will wind up being used at aha moment TV commercials next year. A great way to spread the word about the value of doing good for others.
