Playing cards at the Peninsula Volunteers Little House has led to national recognition for one Menlo Park man.
Leonard Friedman, 87, has devoted 19 years of service at Little House, hosting a bridge club and introducing people to the game each month.
"You get a good feeling when you volunteer," he said in a press release. "You teach people a new game, but you also learn from the experiences. Volunteering makes you healthier, happier and wiser."
Selected by RSVP of San Mateo and Northern Santa Clara County, Mr. Friedman will receive the President's Volunteer Service Award on Monday, Dec.12, at the Peninsula Volunteers Little House at 800 Middle Ave. in Menlo Park. The ceremony starts at 3:30 p.m.
