Celebrating our Volunteers

Our annual Volunteer Celebration was held Friday, October 20.  It was a great evening with an amazing Lowcountry Boil  prepared by our favorite caterer, Smoking Valley Chef. In  addition there was chicken salad, coleslaw, fresh baked corn  bread, Mac ‘N Cheese, and a wonderful array of cookies and  mini cupcakes. A rousing game of Trivia tested our memories  and produced 8 winners. Who can name the 10 preceding Vice  Presidents before Joe Biden???? 

Goodie Bags filled with an assortment of nifty gifts were given  to each volunteer. We thank our supporters, Integrity Home  Care, Sprenger Health Care, and Encompass Rehab Hospital for  donating many of these items. 

Volunteers make Staying Connected the organization it is today.  Without the dedication and loyalty of our volunteers we would  not exist. Representatives from all our services areas were in  attendance. Staying Connected is honored to celebrate you.
