Unusual devotion

Way back in August, 2005, I stopped by to visit the Capital PC User Group booth at the Montgomery County Agricultural Fair. Staffing the booth was former CPCUG president Dennis Courtney.

When I asked Dennis whether he was volunteering for a day or two, he replied that he was volunteering for every day of the fair. Best as I can recall, that fair went on for 5 days or more.

The degree of devotion required to do that much volunteering is rare. That's a rare degree of devotion. Other leaders of the Capital PC User Group have shown an equal degree of devotion.

I sometimes wonder what causes a person to have that much devotion. Maybe it boils down to the fact that they care a lot.
