VOLUNTEERS OF THE MONTH - July, August, and September 2017

I appreciate each and every volunteer for taking such good care of the Center. You are the heart and the soul of the Center. Volunteers are the best. Each Tidings we honor three groups or individuals that exemplify the service you all provide. Thank you! Carlye

July Volunteer of the Month

Our July volunteer of the month is Carleen. We had a very successful June Rummage Sale. Much of the success goes to Carleen and her helpers. Thanks to Bob, Al, Jeffrey, and TW for the pick up work. Thanks to all those who organized the hundreds of donations, priced everything, boxed and unboxed it all, setup tables and displays, worked the sale, and then helped clean up and reset the rooms.

Carleen’s happy spirit, organizational skills, pricing knowledge, leadership qualities, and friendly manner made those months of work and the sale a delight. Carleen made the ‘rummage’ room fun! Now we start on the next sale in October. If you want to join Carleen and crew come on in! You will be providing a great service and having a fun and rewarding time. Thanks Carleen and crew and congratulations on being our July Volunteer of the Month.

August Volunteer of the Month

Our August Volunteer of the Month is the gentleman that does most of our pickups for our auction season and for the center year round. He was a real trooper especially this year as he did all this in great pain while awaiting his new hip. Thanks to Rusty Forster for all this fine work.

Rusty is also a Board Member, fantastic center supporter, pinochle leader, and general all-around center helper. He can tell a great joke and is always positive. I always ask how are you and his answer is always “I’m in a great frame of mind.” What a great attitude, he will age gracefully. Congratulations Rusty on being our August Volunteer of the Month.

September Volunteer of the Month

Our September Volunteer of the Month is another hard worker with a great attitude. T.W. Wang does it all, from setting tables to assisting with almost all special events. And he knows where to put the soup spoon and everything in the right place, which is welcoming to all our lunch guest.

T.W. helps with all our events, doing whatever is needed to make it successful. He works wherever he is needed, always saying others are the deserving ones of praise, and never seeks any recognition. Yes, T.W. it takes a team working together but you are the one deserving to be our Volunteer of the month. Congratulations!

April Volunteers of the Month

The April Volunteers of the month have to be the Auction Committee under the Chair of Al Hoveland’s leadership. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and it is successful because of the hard work of the committee, volunteers and staff.

This committee works year around to make this event spectacular and successful. Thank you and congratulations to each of you that helped in any way, especially to committee members, Jan Loder, Rutha Thomas, Annie and John Davies, Paul Sivesind, Jeanne Eagleson, Gail Sherman, Rusty Forster, Wendy McCallum, Patti Steele, and all the marvelous sponsors, donors, guests and volunteers.
Congratulations!


May Volunteers of the Month

The May volunteers are a repeat group. We must recognize again, Glo Holcomb and her great decorating helpers, Stephan Sell, Jeffrey Mayo and Laurie Belfor. Also, Laurie and her group for her wonderful additions for Valentine’s, St. Patrick’s Day, and Spring Celebration – Lovely!

The center Harmony Dining Hall is now beautifully decorated and the tables awesome, because of this
fantastic committee. When has the center every looked better? Walls, table centerpieces, party decorations are all wonderful. What a group! And thank you for our celebratory atmosphere, each week, and for each month’s party. Thanks and congratulations to this great group!


June Volunteers of the Month

We are open Wednesday nights and that happens, mostly, because of our great Wednesday night crew. Bob’s helpers in the kitchen are the best! Congratulations to Kirsten, Donna and Nick.

We are so glad our beloved Bingo leader Genovan is back, and we are grateful to her star helpers.
Thanks to Anna for “leading” the upstairs activities, movies, classes and making sure everyone is happy and satisfied. To Wednesday leaders and volunteers, you are the best!
