Dort Marzolf has been volunteering at our food panty since 1985-- yes you heard right since 1985! Over those 30 years she has helped out at least once a week but often more than that. On our Thanksgiving and Christmas Turkey give-aways you can always see her when the first wave of people comes in at 9 in the morning. This April 13th she is turning 85 and still comes in every Friday morning and staffs our reception desk answering the phone. She has a great sense of humor and has told me some of the best jokes, some of them quite feisty. Now living in an assisted living apartment, she enjoys that she doesn’t have to cook anymore. Still receiving one ofher great pies or cakes is a very nice thing.Happy Birthday Dort, keep going.
With love, from the whole Crossroads crew.
