May 21, 2007 - MMH Honors Volunteers at 25th Annual Recognition Dinner

By Stephanie Johnson
Almost 200 volunteers who donate their time to helping patients, visitors and staff at Marietta Memorial Hospital will be honored at a recognition dinner on Thursday, May 24, 2007, at the Marietta Shrine Club.

The dinner serves as a means of thanking the active volunteers who donate their time and skills in performing important functions the hospital couldn’t do without.

“Our volunteers make significant contributions to Marietta Memorial every day,” said 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.”

During the past year, volunteers have donated 28,000 hours in over 30 different areas in hospital departments and outreach programs. Besides their time volunteers have raised and donated over $15,000 to several different programs including the Guardian Angel Fund for hospice patients, Love Lights, baby blankets for the hospital’s nursery and stuffed animals for the Marietta Area Teddy Bear Fund that provides teddy bears for both area hospitals.

Several volunteers reached milestones in the number of hours volunteer in 2006. Among the recipients of milestone hour gold pins is Ethel Gulotta for 14,000 hours, most hours ever earned by a single volunteer in the hospital’s volunteer program; Norma Adams for 9,000 hours; Mary O’Connor for 8,000 hours; Elva Stuart and David Wunderlich for 7,000 hours; and Donna Hall and Bonnie Johnson for 6,000 hours. Also recognized for volunteering over 500 hours in 2006 are 500 Hour Club Members, Andy Francis, Jean Lee, Betty Schott, Ethel Gulotta, Mary O’Connor, David Wunderlich, Dean Hoffart and Ruth Poulton.
