I would like to thank the Daily News for its coverage of the Volunteer Recognition Reception, and for the editorial honoring the volunteers in our community.
Every day there is a group of people in this community that goes out and gives their time and talents to improve the quality of life for everyone, whether that be through the arts, the hospitals, the humane society or working with children.
There is a place for everyone, and we are so pleased to be able to recognize them.
I would also like to recognize the dedicated groups that come together to plan this reception. Representatives from the ALIVE Center, Hope Harbor, BR Long Term Care Ombudsmen, BG Public Library, Girl Scouts, Community Action, CASA, the chamber of commerce and Hospice worked hard to put together this event together.
Volunteers in Action is not one organization acting alone. It is individuals from a number of groups who believe strongly in what they do, and they are greatly appreciated.
We also want to thank Gene Birk, Shane Holinde and Jonathan Jeffrey for volunteering their time to make the evening special.
Again, thank you to the Daily News for recognizing these dedicated individuals. We appreciate your strong sense of community.
Editor’s note: Grubbs is the enrichment and volunteer coordinator for Community Education.
