An active senior, an active citizen


Mon, Jul 23rd, 2012
Posted in Preston Health & Wellness

Muriel Hanson of Preston, Minn. is a woman on the go. She is involved in many activities, both socially and through volunteering. When asked her age, Muriel said she is 79, and then added, “Can I be that old?!” Looking at her schedule, you would never guess Muriel is nearing 80 years of age.

Muriel worked for Preston Utilities for 28 years and retired 16 years ago. After retiring, and the death of her husband, Muriel wanted to stay active. This reporter was lucky to catch Muriel in between trips to St. Paul and South Dakota, one of many trips that Muriel has taken.

Some of the places Muriel has visited include Norway, Ireland, Alaska, Italy, Hawaii, Germany, France, and Belgium.

Muriel’s activities include volunteering at the Tourist Center in Preston, volunteering in her church office, an active member of the VFW in Preston, drives people to appointments using her own vehicle (Muriel was a volunteer driver for Semcac for over 12 years and recently retired from there), takes trips with the F & M Bank Summit Club, attends coffee club, attends Friday night supper club, and goes to dances regularly.

When asked what her secret is to staying young-at-heart Muriel said, “I don’t like to stay home, I like to stay busy.” Muriel exercises regularly at the Fitness Center in Preston, which helps her to stay active as well.

Muriel shows no signs of slowing down, and truly seems to enjoy every activity she is involved in. Many of us could take a lesson from Muriel on how to embrace life, at any age.
