The recipient of the Volunteer of the Year Award was Marion Bearden. Marion works hard for the Auxiliary as chairperson of the Wellness Desk and in the office throughout the year. She also works tirelessly on the annual fashion shows. Thank you Marion, and congratulations!
Many other volunteers received service hour awards.
