CELEBRATING OUR VOLUNTEERS

 

 

 

What better way to celebrate our amazing volunteers than a party! We held our first ever OKTOBERFEST GALA on October 28th with all the trimmings for just that purpose. An authentic German dinner by Bluffton’s own Southern Barrel Brewing Co. was enjoyed by over 100 guests. Desserts consisted of delicious Black Forest Cheesecake and Apple Fritters with caramel topping. And what would Oktoberfest be without pretzels and beer? We were treated to the most humongous soft pretzels ever seen and an assortment of unique specialty beers brewed exclusively by Southern Barrel Brewing Co. A presentation of what it takes to get Mary Member signed up and Vinny Volunteer together was an eyeopener for everyone. Prepared by Peggy Pope, our Staying Connected Scheduler, the presentation outlined all the steps necessary to take on a new member and begin services with our volunteers. It definitely takes a village! We are sincerely grateful to our sponsors who make events like this possible. ENCOMPASS HEALTH REHABILITATION HOSPITAL OF BLUFFTON https://encompasshealth.com/
