The many volunteers who donate their time to helping patients, visitors and staff at Marietta Memorial Hospital will be honored at a recognition dinner on Friday, May 20 at the Lafayette Hotel. The dinner serves as a means of thanking the active volunteers who donated almost 28,000 hours in over 30 different areas in the hospital over the past year.
Several volunteers reached milestones in the number of hours given during 2010. Among the recipients of milestone hour gold pins were: Evelyn Hawn for 13,000 hours; Beth Arman and Mary O’Connor for 10,000 hours; Jean Lee and Walt O’Connor for 7,000 hours; and Andy Francis and Bonnie Johnson for 6,000 hours. Recognized for donating over 500 hours in 2010 are 500 Hour Club Members: Andy Francis, Dean Hoffart, Wayne Francis, Donna Francis, Harry Coffey and Casi Stewart. Special attention was also noted for nineteen volunteers who have been working at the Memorial Health System for over 20 years.
“Our volunteers make significant contributions to Marietta Memorial every day,” says Anna Vukovic, director of volunteer services. “We are pleased to have this opportunity to recognize them for their commitment to this community and to our delivery of excellent health care locally,” says Vukovic.
