Boy, times sure have changed. Sometimes I feel that I was born in the wrong century. My volunteer consulting project recently started up. I am very excited about this year’s team since we have a mix of both “older” volunteers (older meaning they are over 50) and “younger” volunteers (younger being under 30). Everyone is […]
