Golden Girl nominee writes thanks

Volunteering has been a way of life for me; our mother taught us, "We are our brothers' keeper"

Editor, The Times:

I was on my way on a camping trip when I learned I had been nominated as a Golden Girl for the 2012 Regatta. I don’t know who nominated me but I am honored by their submission.

Volunteering has been a way of life for me; our mother taught us, “We are our brothers’ keeper” and I have tried to follow her teaching. This community has been good to my family and me and I am just giving back.

Again, I am thankful for the honor and sorry I missed the presentation. Congratulations to Mrs. Buck and to Mary Stewart – the other nominee.

P.S. The flowers are lovely.
