“Rene J. Morissette”
SERVICE TO SENIORS AWARD
The Methuen Exchange Club and Methuen Council on Aging proudly present this year’s “Rene J. Morissette Service to Seniors Award” to…
Theresa officially began volunteering at the Methuen Senior Activity Center ten
years ago and became a Methuen Senior Activity Center Trustees last year.
Starting out small with just a project or two, today you’ll find Theresa involved
on a daily basis in nearly every event and program including the annual Holiday
Craft Fair, Arts, Crafts and Music Festival, health fairs, informational talks, the
daily lunch program, TRIAD Senior Safety Program and more! Intergenerational
programs are particularly dear to Theresa and she participates weekly in the
Adopt-A-Grandparent program with Methuen High students and year after
year in the Pen Pals Project with 3rd graders at the CGS Grammar school.
Theresa also volunteers her time helping with the Happy Hearts Choral Group
ever week, on occasion in the Thrift Shop or as a trip monitor for one of the
many tours offered though the senior center and is always one of the first to help
out with the big newsletter mailing twice a year! Theresa’s commitment to
helping others doesn’t end with the senior center. You might see her helping
with fundraising and awareness efforts for our US Military, Elder Services of
the Merrimack Valley, the American Cancer Society and more!
No matter the task, Theresa jumps right in! Don’t let her quiet demeanor fool
you… She’s an absolute powerhouse of versatility and volunteerism and her
participation and unwavering support Methuen’s Senior Center is nothing short of amazing!
