“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”
For the past ten years, she and two other volunteers planned and organized the La Jolla Concerts By the Sea – wonderful volunteer work, indeed. Her hobbies include tennis, bridge, and reading. She is a vital member of The Chateau La Jolla Retirement Community.
