Paul Scrabeck has found a way to stay very busy, despite retiring from being a dairy farmer in 1998.

&uot;I have no dull days,&uot; he said.

Scrabeck volunteers at St. John’s Lutheran Home, Retired Senior Volunteers Program and at Friendship Home in Wells.

Scrabeck started volunteering with his wife 15 years ago at Friendship Home, visiting residents every Sunday. After his wife needed care at Good Samaritan Center, he started volunteering there by being a driver on trips.

After Scraback’s wife died, he decided to continue volunteering at the two nursing homes and then also get involved with RSVP and St. John’s.

&uot;I enjoy people. It’s that simple,&uot; he said. &uot;It’s really a blessing.

Scrabeck also enjoys the relationships that he has struck up with the people for whom he volunteers. He looks forward to meeting with people and helping making their day brighter.

&uot;I get a lot more out of it than I could ever give,&uot; he said. &uot;It means a lot.&uot;
