The efforts of a multitude of individuals who cared only that the Beaver Dam Senior Center existed are honored in these pages.

This book chronicles how the people who created the events in these pages went about their work to keep the Beaver Dam Senior Center viable to the older adult in the community of Beaver Dam and surrounding areas. They voluntarily accomplished this with a strong sense of character accomplishing those tasks without need for acclaim or recognition.

The pages here reflect excellence in what volunteers can accomplish at a Senior Center, and how those volunteers and their Directors built a Senior Center from the ground up and maintained it for 40 years.

This is their story--this is their time to be recognized and respected for what they have done for the older adult population and their community.
