Most of my volunteering involves cooking--like for Hospice or the needs of the elderly, etc. I had an active role in City government in our community for four years and made a vow not to attend any more meetings when that wound up, so I help out any ways that I can, as long as NO meetings are involved. I am a true believer in volunteering, provided I feel that it is a legitimate help to someone and not just to get credit for something without doing much of anything.

Absolutely. I do some pro bo stuff for Kansas Legal Services in Topeka. However, not usually in the summer months, cause the kids are out of school, so I spend my spare time with them.

Well, I got paid, but I made it plain I would only serve one term --I avoided much of the public criticism that I probably would have gotten during a second term. I did get sued, but was indemnified by the City and we won, though the "accuser" declared bankruptcy, so the City's insurance got stuck with the bill. A very interesting chapter in my life--nice to be out of it!
