Recognize hospice volunteers

April 17, 2013 — The editor:

    National Volunteer Week is April 21-27. This is a time to recognize and celebrate the thousands of men, women and young people who volunteer in communities across the country. We have some special volunteers at Community Hospice who deserve recognition for the work they do to ensure those at the end of life find comfort, love, and respect.  

    More than two hundred volunteers at Community Hospice give their time and expertise to support people during one of life’s most challenging experiences and they should be honored for the care and compassion they provide every single day.

    They spend time at the bedside, help out family caregivers, participate with our community outreach efforts, and assist in the office and at the Care Center. They also provide fundraising support.

    I encourage others to learn more about hospice by contacting Community Hospice at 606.329.1890 or 800-926-6184 or visit our website at

    LuAnn Vance

    Director of Volunteers

    I am writing you today concerning Carter Elementary PTO. I have a daughter who has perfect attendance this year. She has gone all year thinking if she had perfect attendance she would be getting the $100 prize like they gave out last year.
