Red-Vested Rockstar: Ron Coleman
Why he rocks! “I got into volunteering shortly after moving to Minnesota from California. I was retired, and could not find my bearings during the long winter months, so I started volunteering. I found that helping others, helped me.”
Favorite thing to do outside of volunteering? “golfing and gardening are my passions. I love being outdoors, digging in the dirt, whether it’s golfing or gardening.”
Do you have any kids or pets of your own? “I have four kids and five grandkids, all on the east coast. I also have a cocker spaniel named Jazz.”
If you could create a new candy bar, what would be in it and what would you name it? “My candy bar would be named ‘nuts about you’. It would consist of walnuts, pecans, cranberries and pure dark chocolate bits. No sugar added!
