A noteworthy account of selflessness & giving. Good story.

Curious...why are there are no significant volunteers representing the new wave of immigrants now residing on the peninsula? They are certainly seen in large numbers at the various community senior centers (i.e. MV) during the senior lunch program and various game rooms.

Steve Player was my next-door neighbor when I was a kid (from ages 5-18) and I have such fond memories of him. He always had a smile and a kind word and no one is more deserving of this than he is.
