Oral History Project Continues with Father-Son Story from Richard Meyer and Gordon Meyer on Family Volunteering

Atlanta’s Red Cross recognized 50-year volunteer Dick Meyer on July 5, 2014 as part of our Centennial Celebration at Turner Field. In his many years with us, he has been involved in almost every area of Red Cross service, from teaching first aid and CPR, to responding to local and national disasters, to guiding youth volunteers and more. In a conversation with his son Gordon, Dick shares that, of all his accomplishments, he’s most proud of instilling a love of service in his own children.
