We got to catch up with Carol Haertline, who has been volunteering in the Store to Door office this fall, and get to know her a little bit better!
How long have you volunteered with Store to Door? What have you been helping us with?
I started as a shopper earlier this year. Then when Store to Door was looking for office support this fall, I stepped in to help in the office.
What do you enjoy most about volunteering with Store to Door?
I really enjoyed getting my steps in while shopping. And also the scavenger hunt aspect of it. In the office, it’s great to be so busy, to know I’m helping both the customers and staff. Always something new to learn.
What is the most beautiful place you’ve ever been?
Oh my so many choices. I think northern Arizona in the mountains in an aspen grove with a light breeze so the leaves quake. The sky is just incredibly blue.
What’s Your Favorite Childhood Book?
Harold and the purple crayon. What an imagination.
If You Could Have Dinner With Anyone From History, Who Would It Be?
I would actually love to have one more dinner with my dad. He was a fascinating, thoughtful, introspective man and I’d give a lot to hear his thoughts on the current state of the country.
Do you have a hidden talent or a special skill? A good party trick?
My weekends are spent teaching people to ride motorcycles. I learned 20 years ago, started teaching 15 years ago. Love of my life.
