At its meeting on Nov. 28, the Carpinteria City Council recognized Nona Hulick with a resolution in honor of her 100th birthday. Nona moved to Carpinteria in 1999 after spending winters in the area for years. She began volunteering as a dispatcher for HELP of Carpinteria in 2010, making it possible for non-driving Carpinteria residents to remain in their homes and maintain their independence far beyond the time when they can no longer drive. Every Thursday afternoon Nona continues to volunteer as a HELP of Carpinteria dispatcher and is well known for her sunny disposition and her caring customer service. Nona says that her greatest accomplishment is her family: daughters Barb Goodridge and Kathy Hulick, son Bob Hulick, seven grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.
