Hospice of Amador and Calaveras says Thank You to Growing Number of Volunteers ~ By Tammy Beilstein

Hospice of Amador and Calaveras said thank you to their many volunteers during the 17th annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner held on Friday, April 23rd, at the American Legion Hall in Sutter Creek. Board Chairman, Paul Cherry, set the evening in motion with words of gratitude and appreciation for the dinner attendees before speaking on the theme of “Volunteers Build a Better World”. He then passed the microphone to Hospice of Amador and Calaveras staff members Ann Metherd and Lynne Standard who handed out certificates of appreciation....

The number of volunteers for this program is impressive and rising. The count total increased from 123 in 2008 to 136 in 2009. This does not take into account the 45-50 new volunteers already added in 2010 as a result of the recent Family Support Training and the opening of the new Hospice Thrift Store in Angels Camp.

“I believe the volunteers are the heartbeat of the organization,” said Metherd. “We wouldn't survive without them… They are awesome!”

Among those who received special recognition for setting volunteer milestones were:

3 Year Volunteers: Connie Blaylock, Dick Clark, Lisa Conti, Marge Davis, Steve Falconer, Terry Hale, Ed Kangeter, Susan Keisner, Karen Metke, Catherine Sullivan, Earl Tindall and Alice Warren.

5 Year Volunteers: Sandy Peterson, Linda Poulis and Mary Beth Van Voorhis.

10 Year Volunteers: Ann Andrews, Grace Johnson, Gretchen Kingsbury, Joan Nikolai, Mike Nikolai, Dee Tasto, Bill Tasto, Dave Vicari and Mary Vogt.

15 Year Volunteers: Sharon Burwell and Lorriane Daniels

20 Year Volunteer: Mary Gallo

One of the most touching moments at this year’s Volunteer Appreciation Dinner came when the extraordinary “Gift of the Heart Award” was presented to Mary Van Zanten.

Two board members from the California Hospice and Palliative Care Association, Susan Negreen and Susan Plummer, made it a point to attend this event so they could personally present Van Santen her award in the company of family, friends and colleagues.

Van Santen has volunteered more than 10 years of service with the Hospice of Amador and Calaveras organization in areas of Family Support and Hospice Thrift Store. She and her husband Jack also finds unique ways to bring community recognition to the organization.

Dan Riordan, Executive Director of Hospice of Amador and Calaveras, said, “This is an incredible group of people and our program is lucky to have their support. During the past year our hospice has provided care to more patients and families than ever before. Without our talented and energetic volunteers, Hospice of Amador and Calaveras simply could not provide the very special services it does.”
