Volunteering l Off Kilter
Last updated 7/31/2019 at Noon
I’ve volunteered some of my time for quite a long period. It started while I was still a relatively young worker. I was working at Raytheon in Waltham, Massachusetts, building anti-aircraft missiles (ground to air).
At any rate, when the Raytheon annual picnic (for employees) came around each spring, I volunteered to dress up as a clown (some say it absolutely fits my personality and I don’t actually have to pretend at all!) to entertain the children at the picnic. The funniest thing I can remember is one small boy looked at me and said to his mother, “There’s a man in there.”...
