Dear Elizabeth Dombeck,

Extracts from this document...


Dear Elizabeth Dombeck, Someone wiser than me once said that "the surest sign of old age is loneliness". Though I don't know his name, I can give you mine before I echo his sentiments and urge you to act upon them. My name is Serena Raheja and as Previous Secretary/Current Treasurer of my Key Club, I recently attended the II District Convention.

"Men and women approaching retirement age should be recycled for public service work, and their companies should foot the bill. We can no longer afford to scrap-pile people." (Maggie Kuhn). Senior Citizens are our most valuable natural resource. In them we find a veritable mine of information as well as a vital link to the past.

By involving the elderly in Key Club projects, not only will we be combating isolation, we will be helping kids to realize how much the elderly have to offer to them.
