July 2021 Volunteer of the Month

Our July Harman Center Volunteer of the Month is Rita Penner. She is originally from Kansas. She has been living in Yakima for over 30 years. She moved to Yakima due to her husband’s job. She has one son in Seattle and a grandson. She used to be a Clerk Typist for the Yakima Herald Republic for 30 years. She enjoys golfing, ping pong, knitting, games, hiking, among a lot of other things. She took music lessons for piano and the accordion since she was 6 years old as well as sang trios with her two older sisters.

Rita began volunteering at the Harman Center in 2018. She loved coming to the Harman Center and wanted to be more involved. She is a trustee on the board for the Yakima Valley Senior Citizens, Inc. She is active, kind, and friendly. Come on down to the Harman Center to meet Rita as well as some of our other Volunteer All-Stars.
