Labor of Love

Local woman honored for 65 years of service with fire company auxiliary

B

By Greg Swatek News-Post Staff

arbara Zimmerman says she doesn’t like to be in the center of things. But, on this occasion, she had no choice. At a recent picnic for the New Market Volunteer Fire Company, Zimmerman, 87, was presented with a blanket to commemorate her 65 years of service in the company’s auxiliary division. There were tears in her eyes as she embraced her longtime friend, Peggy Sue Garst, who had spent four months diligently crocheting it for her. “I was surprised and tickled pink [by the gesture],” Zimmerman said. “I was also very proud. Sixty-five years is a long time.” If there is a carnival, parade or dinner function that involves the New Market Volunteer Fire Company, Zimmerman is usually a part of it. Her late husband Gene was a charter member of the fire company, and Zimmerman was one of the first on the auxiliary, in addition to serving as a secretary and historian for the unit. Quiet nights on the family farm were broken up by the police scanner that told Gene where the fires were and what companies were responding. “He said, ‘If it goes off when I am milking the cows, I am leaving,’” Zimmerman recalled. Gene would ride to the scene in his beloved fire engine, 151, which was recently restored by the fire company. And Barbara would always be there in support, watching their two chil4

dren, Ed and Sherry, organizing and serving meals to the firefighters and playing a prominent role in other company events. “I don’t ever remember a time in my life—and I was born in 1953— that the fire department wasn’t a part of our lives,” Zimmerman’s daughter Sherry said. “It was just us.” For parades, the Zimmermans would shine up their 1935 Chevy to ride in them. Barbara, Sherry and Ed would ride along in the car, while

Gene rode ahead on Engine 151. “We were at every carnival and every parade,” Sherry said. “And there were a lot of them.” When the New Market Volunteer Fire Company was looking for a way to honor Zimmerman for all of her years of dedicated service, it knew whom to call. Peggy Sue Garst, 59, of Frederick, has been crocheting blankets for nearly 50 years. “It’s what I do all day,” she said.

Six years ago, Garst’s son, Shawn, suggested that she donate some of her work to service members in the community, such as EMTs, firefighters and police officers. So, when the New Market Volunteer Fire Company contacted her earlier this year, she did not hesitate to help. “When they called and asked me to make a blanket for a special person, I didn’t know who it was for,” Garst said. Garst’s son used to babysit Zimmerman’s daughter, and that dynamic created a friendship between Barbara and Peggy Sue that has spanned almost 30 years. “When they told me I was making [the blanket] for her, I was just like, ‘[Oh, my goodness], I had no idea I was making it for her.’” When she was a child, Garst used to roll up balls of yarn at her grandmother’s feet. It was a fun way to pass the time while her grandmother, Stella, crocheted. On one occasion when she was 10, Garst picked up one of Stella’s crocheting hooks and bluntly asked, “What’s this for?” This began a labor of love that has endured for nearly a half-century. “It gives me peace of mind,” Garst said. “It’s a stress reliever.” The white afghan with a multi-color fringe she crocheted for Zimmerman is embroidered with Engine 151, as well as Barbara’s company number (15) and years of service (65). “I was just so happy for her,” Garst said. “She is a great lady.”

Honoring Veterans Homewood to lay Wreaths Across America

“I think it’s just important to honor our people who served in our military, no matter when, no matter whether they’re alive or whether they’ve passed away.”

By Hannah Himes News-Post Staff

O

n Dec.19, volunteers will walk among the headstones at Mount Olivet Cemetery, placing wreaths on the graves of veterans. Homewood Wreaths Across America is one of the groups partnering with Mount Olivet to help honor veterans. The group surpassed it fundraising goal by early November, as 708 wreaths were sponsored by Nov. 5. “Those of us probably who are seniors have seen more war than a lot of other people,” said Sue Chapin, a resident at Homewood at Frederick who co-chairs the Homewood Wreaths Across America committee with Libby Fuss. “I think it’s just important to honor our people who served in our military, no matter when, no matter whether they’re alive or whether they’ve passed away,” she said. Wreaths Across America is a national nonprofit organization that aims to “remember the men and women who served our country, honor our military and their families, and teach our children about our freedom and those who protect it.” Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, the nonprofit coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 2,100 additional locations in all 50 states, at sea and abroad, according to its website. 6

A WWII veteran and his wife place wreaths at the graves of World War I and II veterans buried at Mount Olivet Cemetery on Wreaths Across America day in 2018.

Chapin said the Wreaths Across America program at Homewood is in its third year. “It was started by the Homewood Auxiliary in 2018. It is not sponsored by the auxiliary now … but they were the ones that got it started,” she said. It almost didn’t happen this year, but Chapin said she felt it was im-

portant, in part because her husband served in the military, so Homewood residents pulled a committee together. Each wreath costs $15, $10 of which goes to Wreaths Across America and $5 of which goes to Homewood to benefit its healthcare center. Fundraising began in September, Chapin said.

Last year, Chapin was a volunteer and said that the day was cold and wet. This year, she’s hoping for a better forecast. Seeing the wreath goal be surpassed was extremely exciting, she said. “We did almost everything, of course, by email and virtually and our first goal was 450 wreaths ... because we thought the pandemic might have some kind of a negative effect. But I think it actually has enhanced us because more people are paying attention,” she said. Jim Hubbard is a resident at Homewood and served in the U.S. army between 1959 and 1962. He and his wife Sherry have volunteered with Homewood Wreaths Across America in the past, and while he, too, is hoping for better weather this year, Hubbard said it’s a worthwhile experience regardless. “It’s a nice feeling,” he said. “The fact that we’re acknowledging, if you will, at least the memories of the individuals who have gone before who have, in many cases, sacrificed mightily to kind of preserve our society and our way of life [is] a very compelling link to the past.” Honoring veterans by placing wreaths on their graves is important, Hubbard said, because “the United See Wreaths, 19

Q&A:Holiday Celebrations A

By Erika Riley News-Post Staff

s the weather gets colder and the coronavirus pandemic intensifies across the nation, we’re also in the midst of the holiday season.What’s usually a much-anticipated time of year has become a little confusing as traditions are reconsidered and travel plans are canceled. Prime Time hit the streets in downtown Frederick to ask some folks how they plan to celebrate this year with so much uncertainty, and travel advisories still in place.  Al Bassett said that he is still holding holiday gatherings, but with many fewer people. His father Steve, who lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, said that with kids all over the country, they would be forgoing getting together since it would require extensive travel. But the virus hasn’t put a stop to all traditions. Bassett will still be making his famous holiday eggnog and giving back to the community through charity work this December. Still, the itch to travel around this time of year is beginning to get to him as the weather cools down in Maryland. “We’re dreaming of somewhere warm, where we can put our toes in the sand,” Bassett said. Alan and Charlotte Meierhoefer said they will be gathering with just one daughter and her kids, instead of having the 15 or so guests they usually do for the holidays. And they said they don’t mind having an excuse to not host so many people. Besides that, there isn’t much that they’re missing out on this year. “We’ve always been low-key,” Charlotte said. Gay Fout said she had planned to have family visit from other states, such as NewYork. But with more travel advisories and mandates in place, those plans were beginning to fall through earlier this month. Her family does not want to have to quarantine for two weeks after returning from Maryland, nor do they have the time off work to do so, she said. “So I don’t know what I’m doing,” Fout said. Terry Spesick actually put in to work on the holidays this year. She said she works at the Maryland School for the Deaf and Arbor Living. The holidays won’t be the same anyway, she said, especially with big events such as the live Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade being canceled. Fout and Spesick agreed on at least one thing: They’re grateful they don’t have to cook a big meal this year. 8

How to Make Money Last in Retirement

H

ealth care is expensive, more people are living longer and the market is on a roller coaster. Worrying about running out of money in retirement is not unfounded. But with financial planning, you can get some breathing room, so you can face retirement with ease rather than stress. Inflation is one reason people think they may run out of money in retirement. If you’re in your late 60s, and you live another 30 years, assuming even a 3% inflation rate, where’s the extra money coming from? Things will probably cost more after 30 years. What can you do? The goal should be to develop a comprehensive retirement plan to help your money last at least until you’re 100. Most people can boost the odds that their money will last as long as they do in retirement using these tips: Minimize fixed expenses such as food, shelter, transportation, debt payments and insurance. Right-size your housing. Stay in your home, and invite other retirees to live there, too, if this is feasible. Or if you’re in a large home, consider downsizing. Also, if you and your partner are both retired, maybe you need only one car. Maximize your Social Security benefits. Maybe you’re better off

retiring early and collecting a smaller amount. Or waiting longer and collecting more may be right for you. Think it through and get professional advice on your choices. Consider a guaranteed income stream. This can take many forms,

such as an annuity. Or maybe you or your partner have a traditional defined benefit plan. In that case, explore options well in advance for making sure the pension will cover the surviving partner. 10

401(k) plan, and these withdrawals are taxable. The point is to work on your tax situation with a professional and not to make assumptions. Phase out work gradually. You don’t have to retire all at once. Maybe the nine-to-five grind is too much, but 15 to 20 hours a week of freelance work is manageable—even enjoyable. Perhaps your old employer would like you to consider consulting with former clients a couple of days a week. If

health permits, waiting even one extra year to retire can increase your standard of living for the rest of your life. Everyone’s situation is different, and your retirement plans are unique. The point is that it’s never too early to discuss your plans with a professional to make sure you’re on track for your dreams. –from the Law Office of Lena A. Clark 129 W.

Dancing for Seniors find a new way to connect during pandemic

etty. Judith. Margaret. With each name Nancy Havlik calls out, a rectangle on her screen stirs as the figure in it moves to the sound of a cello. The grid on Havlik’s monitor shows about a dozen people on the Zoom call with her, and each is waiting to answer, through an impromptu dance, a question she asked:What’s something that’s made you happy in the past two weeks? One woman stands, then squats, moving up and down, up and down, as she describes her 9-month-old grandbabies learning to walk. Another woman squawks what sounds like the word, “Wow,” before appearing to fly gracefully out of view. Carolyn. Peg. Sue. Roberta. Mary Lou. Havlik calls on each, and just when she thinks she’s given everyone a turn, someone reminds her that she forgot Gloria. “Gloria?” Havlik asks. “Where’s Gloria?” “She’s right behind me,” someone says. “She’s right next to me,” someone else offers. “Oh, there’s Gloria,” Havlik says. “She’s in my corner.” Gloria is actually nowhere near any of them. She is sitting alone in the dining area of an assisted-living center, wearing a disposable face mask. Her image appears in different places on each person’s screen, but not everyone on the call may know that.The members of Quicksilver, aWashington, D.C.-area improvisational senior dance company, are still getting used to virtual rehearsals. 12

Partnering with live musicians through the nonprofit group Arts for the Aging, the dance team would guide participants, many their same ages, through different moves they could do from their seats and wheelchairs. The dance team’s members describe those encounters as powerful for both them and the participants, who might not have many opportunities to interact with people outside of the facilities where they live.They tell of forging connections through a touch of a hand and witness-

It caused adult day-care centers to shut down and forced assisted-living facilities and nursing homes to keep out visitors. That meant the people and activities that gave residents some joy had to stay away, while grief wrapped itself around them. One of the nursing homes in Maryland where the dance team used to hold ses-

to stop meeting in person because many of the members are in their 70s and 80s, making them also vulnerable to the virus. “I couldn’t process it,” Havlik says of the moment it hit her that she couldn’t resume the active life she had created. “I was probably depressed. I was numb. Everyone was numb.” Quicksilver dancer Dorothy Levy, who is 86 and lives in Northwest Washington, is divorced and has four daughters who don’t live in the area.

She describes one woman from a recent class. “She was kind of not moving at all, and she was a little grumpy, like someone brought her there,” Havlik says. She usually starts each session by asking participants to shake and wiggle certain body parts. “She didn’t do it at first. Then all of a sudden you see these little shoulders move.

WREATHS, continued from 6

States has been involved in a great many situations internationally in which individuals who don’t necessarily want to go to war were, in a sense, forced to by the international situation.” This disrupted their lives and the lives of their loved ones, magnifying the sacrifice and contributions they made, he said. “So we’re basically in kind of a strange sense, we’re saying to them, that is to say to their memory, ‘We appreciate what you did and we want to honor you in this way,’” Hubbard said. Hubbard said he feels that there are an awful lot of younger people who aren’t necessarily sensitive to what has gone on before and lack historical perspective.

So, volunteering with Wreaths Across America is also something he would recommend to others, particularly parents of young children. “If the parents want to try to sensitize the kids to what has gone on in the past so at least they could understand what their grandparents and great grandparents and so forth participated in and sacrificed …” he said. “And, of course, additionally there are teachers and big brothers and big sisters and members of service organizations who work with kids who additionally have the opportunity to kind of reinforce that understanding and that bond with the past.” For more information about Wreaths Across America, visit wreathsacrossamerica.org.

Sudoku

Here’s How It Works:

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
