Letter to the Editor
Thanks for help at volunteer recognition

May 08, 2013

Dear Editor,

Independence Township Senior Adult Activity Center's annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon at Clarkston United Methodist Church was attended by over 100 volunteers and guests, April 26.

Thanks to staff and volunteers for all of the hard work they put into this event: Mary Przybycien and volunteers Shirley Bryan, Diane Brozovich, Ron Frank, Bev Kertesz, Beverly Krol, Rosie Landry, Mary Melega, Mary Jo Reid, Pam Spenser, Sue Wagner and others who helped prepare food and decorate for this event.

Also thanks to all of our staff members for working together with our volunteers to make our center a successful place. Our over 150 volunteers make it possible for us provide higher levels of programs and services to the community. We appreciate their hard work and everything they do for us.

We are especially grateful this year for Clarkston United Methodist Church and Pastor Rev. Shane Moore and his staff members Mary Hubbell, Colleen Godfrey and Anita Dempster for working with us and allowing us to have our luncheon in their hall. They have been very gracious to us and supportive of our center and programs.

Without the following businesses and sponsors we would not have such a successful event. Thanks to sponsors Coats Funeral Home-Silver Level; Home Instead Senior Care-Silver Level; Lewis E. Wint & Son Funeral Home, Inc.-Bronze Level; and Susan's Hallmark-Gifts for the volunteers.

Several local restaurants donated food for our luncheon. Our volunteers were very grateful for such a wonderful menu. It was a real treat to try out the different dishes that they provided. Thank you to businesses for your generous donations of food for this event, Brioni Café & Deli, Clarkston Union & Woodshop, Gregg's Gourmet Café, Pete's Oven Bakery, Pizzeria dolce, Royal Diner and the Sportsmen Great Northern Grill.

It was a great event thanks to everyone listed above for their donations and hard work.
