A Very Special Thank You to Two of Our Most Dedicated Volunteers
At our scheduled March Volunteer Appreciation banquet, we were going to honor two very special volunteers for their many hours of dedicated service to the Friends. As you know, the banquet had to be canceled because of COVID-19. Since we are not going to be able to hold another volunteer get-together any time soon, the Friends Board created a special recognition event for Mary Anne McDonald and Sue Painter.
This was the schedule of events: Saturday, September 12 President Sue Blechl delivered flowers and a card to Sue and Mary Ann at their homes. Sunday, September 13 A group of Board members visited each of Sue's and Mary Ann’s home to deliver a “singing telegram," wine, and chocolates. Monday, September 14 A car parade of Board members and other volunteers went by each of the two homes honking and waving congratulations and thanks. Yard art of "thank you" were pre placed.
Volunteer Newsletters: A great way to keep on top of things! Written monthly, and delivered to your in-box by our Writer and Editor-in-Chief, Tom Everitt (past Board President)
