The mission of Second Wind is to identify outstanding volunteers who contribute so much to the quality of life in our community and to recognize retirees sixty years and over who had a useful and productive life continuing beyond retirement while others paused to rest. They caught a “second wind” and began a new service career to the community and mankind.
