Dick began his “career” as a volunteer following his retirement in 1992 from Eastman Kodak, where he worked as an engineer for 30 years. He initially approached RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) in Rochester, NY, to learn where his skills and experience could best be put to use. He was given a lengthy list of nonprofit organizations in need of volunteer assistance; among the organizations were several UCP affiliates.
Dick ended up providing services to all of them. In 1995, after Dick and his wife Ann relocated to Gettysburg, he inquired about volunteer opportunities in the area. UCP Central PA was among the organizations with a need. Now, nearly 15 years later, the rest is history.
