Dalene touches lives
As soon as her granddaughter Liz received her acceptance letter from Camphill Special School, we received a volunteer application from Dalene Seasholtz. She began volunteering even before Liz joined our school!
Each Friday when Dalene arrives, she meets seventh-grader Elizabeth walking to school. They walk together hand in hand to the classroom where Dalene helps Elizabeth with reading and writing. She helps other seventh graders with math and their main lesson and then assists fifth graders in handwork. To complete her day, she enjoys lunch at Antanor with her granddaughter. (Dalene always brings dessert!)
Dalene shares, “I always have been so grateful to everyone who touches Liz’s life. I volunteer so that I can touch the lives of other children. We don’t have a lot of chances to help those who can’t do things as easily as we can. You have to take advantage of opportunities to affect other people’s lives.”
Dalene volunteered once with our high school land group and was paired up with Eddie. Eddie linked arms with Dalene as they walked and brought her to meet his dad at the schoolhouse. Eddie’s father turned to Dalene and said, “Thanks for giving Eddie such a good walk up the hill.” That was enough for Dalene to know that she had touched a life.
