AUXILIARY HONORS. Eight Hardin Memorial Hospital auxiliary volunteers, who cumulatively have volunteered for 62,485 hours, recently were recognized.
The hospital’s medical services bring us to the door. But often the first person encountered is not a doctor, nurse or technician. It’s a volunteer wearing a pink jacket and a welcoming smile.
Margaret Carr, Myrtle Garland, Gabby Gentry, Franklin Janes, Jeanette Jones, Joan Palmer, Dolores Pfeiffer and Ruth Ellen Stanley were presented Monday with the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award for their dedication and service to the community.
The award, signed by President Donald Trump, is for those who contribute more than 4,000 hours of service in their lifetime.
“Presidential recognition sets you apart from your peers,” said Crystal Kelley, Kentucky program director for the Corporation for National and Community Service.
This hard-earned recognition is a sample of the hospital auxiliary devotion to improving the lives of others through service at HMH.
