Aging Announces Volunteers Of The Month

Nancy Eyster, Regalo Willoughby and Jill Lippiatt have been named Volunteers of the Month by the York County Area Agency on Aging for their ongoing service and dedication to the agency and York County’s older adults.

A mother of three who worked in government for 20 years, Nancy Eyster enjoys the variety of things she does as general office assistant and special events volunteer. She has volunteered for the Agency on Aging since 2000 and encourages others to “be flexible, open to new ideas and situations and, most of all, have fun.” Nancy also volunteers for her church community and enjoys spending time with her children and grandsons.

Regalo Willoughby has lived in York since 2007 after moving from the Caribbean and living in New York and Maryland. As a financial counselor for the agency, Regalo has learned from experience the difficulties some older adults face without the help of family, friends or programs such as this one. Even though his objective is financial counseling, he realizes that by helping someone else, you can actually help yourself. He encourages other to give back to their community as he continues to do so with the Agency on Aging and other volunteer organizations.

APPRISE volunteer Jill Lippiatt began volunteering in high school as part of a volunteer club. She enjoys the challenge of the APPRISE program and understanding Medicare so she can better educate and assist seniors to make well-informed choices. Jill encourages others to “not be afraid that you can not learn the APPRISE program and keep working to both educate yourself and others”. In addition to APPRISE, she also volunteers for her church and her children’s schools.
