Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon

The week of April 21st is National Volunteer Appreciation week. Erma Bombeck once said that “volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another.”

The volunteers at the Riordan Clinic are each amazing individuals, and on April 22nd at a luncheon, we celebrated everything they have done over 2012 to help us achieve our mission. In 2012, our volunteers gave 1090 hours of their time. Some of the things they did were: maintain the flower gardens, serve hundreds of guests at our Lunch and Lectures, filing, copying, cleaning, chopping- preparing food and setting up for our IVC and Cancer Symposium, data input, laundry, creating new patient packets, judging our Health is… contest, giving tours, and helping the lab and research—to name a few.

2012 also marked a milestone for two of our volunteers. Nancy Bramhall and Jere Woodard celebrated their 10 year anniversary as Riordan Clinic volunteers this year. We would like to thank each of our volunteers for the endless hours contributed to our clinic.

Thank you! You complete us! Without you, we could not accomplish everything that we hope to. You are each incredible individuals!
