Outside of my “comfort zone”.By Gail Anderson
I joined because it was a time in my life that I wanted to meet different people. I have neighbors and friends and my church family, but I wanted to get out of my “comfort zone”. I had never been outside my comfort zone. I had the same friends, the same church people. I wanted something different.
Sue Kujawa came to Jackie Robinson Center and made a presentation. She told me about the programs and services. I don’t drive and Sue told me they could give me a ride to the doctor sometimes. (She also told me they couldn’t always give me a ride.)
When I joined everyone welcomed me. I was a little scared. I wasn’t sure they would like me. But everyone was so nice to me and I’ve made new friends. I do get rides to the doctor sometimes. But I also contribute by making phone calls to other Village members. I go to potlucks and was in one of the women’s groups.
For me it has been a great experience.
