Honoring volunteers

Posted: Updated:

Volunteering is a way of life for some, whether it's an hour here, or an hour there. But when you start donating thousands of hours, it's in your blood. Blanchard Valley Health Systems recognizes that in their Bluffton Hospital Auxiliary and is honoring their dedication.

The 73 members of the auxiliary donated over 10 thousand hours in 2012 alone. Monday, they were recognized for their individual hours of their volunteer careers, anywhere from 100 to 12-thousand hours.

Margaret Carr has spent nearly a quarter of a century volunteering at Bluffton and has more than 10 thousand hours. Carr always said when she hit 10-thousand hours she would slow down. Not the case, as she has just started a new position volunteering in the cafeteria.

Not present on Monday was Helen Griffith who has reached the 12-thousand hours of volunteering mark.
