paul-andersonQ: Tell us about yourself.

A: I’m 91 years old and I’ve been volunteering at the Food Bank since 1992. I was in the Air Force for almost 30 years when I retired in 1970. I went into real estate after that.


Q: How did you start volunteering at the Food Bank?

A: I was a member of an ex – POW group and began volunteering with them. We came every Monday, and I’ve been volunteering ever since.


Q: After all of these years, what keeps you coming back to the Food Bank?

A: I’ve made a lot of friends and met a lot of good people over the years. CAFB has always treated us [volunteers] well. It gives an old guy like me something to do, and it just wouldn’t be a Monday without coming to the Food Bank.


Q: What do you like to do in your free time?

A: When I can, I play golf. My main job, though, is keeping my yard and garden in good shape.


Q: Tell us about your family.

A: I was stationed in Alaska in 1942. I had a layover in Edmonton, Canada, and that’s where I met Millie. We corresponded by letter until we finally married in 1946 in Albany, Georgia. She’s been taking care of me ever since. We have three children.
