100 Volunteers Honored

In celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Rotary Foundation, we thank and acknowledge the best of our Peninsula Volunteers.

Here’s to all volunteers, those dedicated people who believe in all work and no pay. –Robert Orben

volunteers rock!At Peninsula Rotary, we are continually grateful for the people who give precious time to help others. It’s volunteer participation and support that builds the community we call home. We believe that no one is more cherished than someone who lightens the burden of another.

Volunteers fuel our vision of a peaceful world where everyone has a decent place to live, enough food to eat, clean water, education, and medical assistance. They do so by building relationships; volunteers get to see smiles on the faces of those they serve as they work side by side to realize the dream where a family can grow stronger and more self-reliant.

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. ~Erma Bombeck

Volunteers bring a wide range of contributions to the table: seasoned skills or raw energy; fundraising power or field expertise; one-off contributions; ongoing commitments. Day in and day out, volunteers make extraordinary sacrifices. Regardless of the particular contribution or the duration of that volunteer’s presence, we asked local groups using volunteers to nominate the Peninsula’s best.

We’re delighted to report there are more than 100 names on our list, and we know there are many more in our community. Each deserves our thanks and recognition.

Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart. ~Elizabeth Andrew

If your name is on the list below, which ran in the Chinook Observer this summer, please join us at a meeting where we can present you with a Blankiegram Blanket to thank you for your service! We’re notifying each of you but it will take awhile as we can’t invite all of you to the same meeting! Contact Nancy or Keleigh to schedule or just pop in at a meeting.
