July Volunteer of the Month

Betty Thompson is our July Volunteer of the Month. Betty has lived in Yakima almost her whole life. She has a daughter in town. Betty enjoys bingo and playing cards. She used to enjoy fishing and traveling. Her favorite destination was Quartzsite, AZ. Betty worked for the Cannery for 40 years and retired.

Six years ago, Betty came to Harman Center to check out what it all was about. At that time she met a participant, Megan, which introduced her to so many of the other participants. She began volunteering soon afterwards and has loved it ever since. She helps water the plants, run Pinochle, Skip Bo, and Bingo, and is a door greeter. Betty has also helped with many of the fundraisers at the Harman Center as well. She is easy going, always smiling, and loves people. Come on down to the Harman Center to meet Betty or any of our other Volunteer All-Stars.
