Awards presented at the banquet include:

• Lifetime Achievement Awards to Sharon Covery with 1,500 hours of service, Dianne Burton with 2,000 hours and Pat Mills with 4,000 hours.

“One of the best parts of my job is meeting and working with volunteers,” said Hailey Black, volunteer coordinator. “You have probably already heard or read it many times, we believe you are the backbone of this agency, we couldn’t do what we do without our volunteers.”
