National Volunteer Appreciation Week
To the Editor:
This week, April 6-12, is National Volunteer Appreciation Week. There can't be many people in our little town who don't know someone who gives freely of his or her time and talents to make someone else's life brighter. Petersburg Medical Center alone has thirteen people who have gone through the extra training and screening to become "official" volunteers, and more than 60 others who have helped out in Long Term Care to brighten the lives of our residents. And that is just here in the hospital.
There are several service organizations in town full of people who work for the good of others. And there are countless people who, anonymously all on their own, do what they can to help out their neighbors. Do you know such a person? Are you such a person? Please know that your community appreciates you. Thank you, thank you, for what you do!
