WOODSTOCK - She's been described as the glue that holds everything together at the Big Brothers Big Sisters office in Woodstock.
Agnes Savill was recognized last week for her 25 years of volunteer service at the not for profit organization. Savill tells Heart FM why she keeps coming in every week.
"The reason I like to come is because most of the people I work with here are younger and make me feel younger and I get to keep up with all the new generations."
Savill is now 80 years old and still manages to volunteer every week. The Big Brothers Big Sisters office hosted a special party for her last Thursday to commemorate her 25 years of volunteer service. Interim Executive Director Kristen Ralph tells Heart that Agnes is the glue that holds their office together.
"She is just an integral part of our office, when she misses a day or gone away for a week, we really notice, she knows where everything in this office is, she organizes all of our events, I'm not sure that we could run as smoothly as we do without her here."
