Alamosa Seniors: Cheerful driver brightens trips

I’m so thankful to be able to provide the seniors in our community the opportunity for transportation and also thankful for the wonderful driver we have in Joe Santisteven. He arrives each morning singing a song and maintains a joyful demeanor throughout the day. Our precious passengers call him respectful, loving, kind, generous, flexible, understanding, reliable, humorous and always a gentleman.

We are so blessed to have you, Joe! Thank you for being a part of the Alamosa Senior Citizens and mostly for being You!
