OSWEGO – Volunteers from St. Luke Health Services gathered in the Riverview Room at St. Luke for a â€œSuperâ€ luncheon in their honor. “We are extremely grateful to all our volunteers for the tremendous involvement they have with our residents,” said Volunteer Coordinator Deb Robillard. “Our annual volunteer recognition luncheon is just one small way St. Luke as an organization says thank you for their invaluable contributions all year long.”
This year’s theme, “Volunteers â€“ Superheroes Who Help Build A Better World” featured entertainment by some â€œlocal superheroesâ€ (a.k.a. St. Luke staff), who saved the day, much in the same way St. Luke volunteers are â€œsuperheroesâ€ in residentâ€™s lives and in our community..
Ms. Robillard added, “At St. Luke we have nearly one hundred volunteers of all ages and many community groups who bring their unique talents and skill together to enhance the quality of life our residents experience. Our volunteers contributed thousands of hours of their time and helped with over one thousand programs last year. Volunteers can give of their time as often as they like and many people who inquire are surprised at the number of opportunities and activities we have available.”
