I'd like to tell you a little about the volunteer work my husband has done thru the years. It all started in 1951 when Milt volunteered or enlisted in the Army during the Korean War. He served overseas and was discharged as a First Lieutenant. After coming home he volunteered as a Scoutmaster, collected monies for the Community Chest, and sold poppies for Memorial Day. When my son was 8 years old, Milt started coaching his baseball team. Seven years later my son was done with baseball, but Milt continued working with the youth in baseball for 34 years. At the same time he coached basketball at the Morristown Neighborhood House for many years. Not only did he coach baseball, but brought home many State titles as well as a Mid-Atlantic title. In the seventies he became Athletic director and basketball coach at Bayley Ellard Catholic High School. At the behest of many teachers he has spoken to Morristown High School history students concerning the outbreak of World War II while he was a student at the school. He served on many boards: • Board of directors of the Morristown Jewish Center • Beth Israel Cemetery committee for 20 years • Served on the board of directors of the Morristown Neighborhood House. Also tutored students at the Neighb. • President of the Morristown Babe Ruth League • President of Morris County American Legion baseball All this was at the same time time he worked in our convenience store which was open from 5am to 11pm seven days a week. For several years now, Milt volunteers at Red Cross blood drives and against my wishes also gives his blood every 56 days. He's close to a gallon now. He volunteers at the Lyons Veterans' Hospital at all their picnics. He has been volunteering at the Mayo Performing Arts Center for about 3 to4 years. This year alone he has worked over 50 performances. I would now like to introduce you to my LIVING TREASURE for 61 years ---My husband Milt Goldband
