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.
