Today it is Divisoning for cycling. Our team is ready and it is our first day of working together. George, one of my volunteer team members and I discover that our mother’s are both born in the same village called Manna. We speculate that we may be cousins and I laugh because every time I go to my mom’s village, I always am approached and discover another long lost cousin!
Eleni who is 70 years old is charming, witty, and an authority on dispersing valuable advice. She is my star, and the face of what volunteerism is about. I find out her brother lives in Vancouver and as we finish up our day, She is beaming with the satisfaction that she made a difference.
