Retired for 24 years, Arthur
keeps busy with his volunteer work through
Metropolitan Family Service RSVP.
Arthur volunteers for RSVP at First Christian Church, the
facility provided for a weekly English language learning
class. He describes his job as, "trying to get things
started each week." Arthur, along with his wife Aileen, sets
up the classroom for the weekly class, coordinates
volunteers, and then reorganizes the room when the class
finishes for the day.
College age students — primarily from Portland State — and
other adults take the class to improve their English.
Students are from many countries, including China, Japan, Korea, Iran, Vietnam, and Cuba.
