A visit for a free blood pressure check at the Island Hospital Resource Center more than likely will present the opportunity to meet Elaine Oliphant, a volunteer at the hospital for more than 18 years. Rather than talking about herself, Elaine was eager to express her gratitude for the state-of-the-art digital blood pressure monitor donated by Soroptimist International of Anacortes. Elaine, who wears a pin acknowledging more than 7,500 volunteer hours with the hospital, also volunteers for the Anacortes Police Department, the Senior Center and a couple of retirement homes. “It’s my thing,” she says with a smile.
