Volunteer Appreciation

P1020056I live at Evergreen Heights, one of a three building group that is called the  Baptist Church Campus of Care.

Today was a special day. All the volunteers were invited to a special program from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM,They served a huge, delicious cake and punch and fresh fruit…all very delicious.


They had quite a few good door prizes and you were allowed to pick the one you liked best. I won  a lovely miniture rose bush, sitting on a little chair,… a very special kind..beautiful!

The theme of the party was “ volunteers make magical moments,” so they had a magician to entertain us. Some of the things he did were mind boggling…. like turning a twenty dollar bill into a five. Then turning it back into the twenty after having torn it, and mended it.P1020059

The work that some of us do is purely voluntary but it is so nice to be recognized!

  1. The work of volunteers is such a blessing in any area where they serve, and I think it’s especially appreciated because it’s done selflessly by people who really have a passion for what they do. I’m glad the folks at your complex took time to recognize you and the others with such a nice afternoon program. The photos are great… and I hope you’re also going to share one of your lovely door prize.

  2. Hi Auntie Norma, looks like you had a wonderful time. I just got back from Dunrovin, the place that volunteer at, it was our party also and the theme was Volunteers Rock, they had a gold rock on all the tables and had old records hanging from the ceiling, they did rock and roll songs and some of the residents even sang! great time.

  3. Hi, Norma – what a “magical” afternoon! 🙂 Personally, I would love to turn all my five dollar bills permanently into twenty dollar bills! 😀 Congrats on your winning a prize – look forward to seeing a photo of it. 🙂

  4. It is thanks to the millions of volunteers out there that so many things get done and we get to enjoy things with them. Love seeing your posts.

  5. To Carol, Dayle, Heather and Bev, Thanks to each of you for dropping by and for your most welcome comments. Something is weird here today… 4 others that had commented, and I had answered individually, just disappeared.
