Tuesday Toolmen Celebrate 20 years of Service

Senior Services is proud to host the 20th Anniversary Celebration of our own Tuesday Toolmen  on Tuesday , September 23 from 1:30 – 3:00 pm.

 

The Tuesday Toolmen are a group of retired individuals that unselfishly volunteer their skills, talents and tools to provide emergency home repairs and safety and accessibility modifications to low-income seniors in Kalamazoo. Last year the Toolmen volunteered a total of 2,231 hours of service to the community. Each of the Toolmen, who range in age from 63 – 88 years young, brings a unique set of skills and knowledge to the program.  

“I look forward to each Tuesday and working with these guys” says volunteer coordinator Brian Penny. “They donate their time and talents to help make the world a little better place for older adults in our community.  I tell them, when I grow up, I want to be a Tuesday Toolmen!”

This celebration is open to the community and will include a reunion of past and present Toolmen, an awards ceremony, refreshments, pictures, stories and more.   Stop by, sign the guest book and congratulate this wonderful group of volunteers
