Retired transportation economist and Redmond City Councilman Hank Myers is the new director of the volunteer organization Eastside Friends of Seniors.
He was doing volunteer work in his community when he proposed the idea of creating a nonprofit organization to help seniors maintain their independence by providing essential services that allow them to remain in their own homes.
“My friend said that agency already exists,” Myers recalled. “That’s when she told me about Eastside Friends of Seniors.”
The organization operates out of offices in the basement of Mary, Queen of Peace Catholic Church on the Sammamish Plateau.
