“Trinity Hospital Twin City Recognizes Volunteers”
DENNISON—During a special volunteer appreciation and recognition luncheon this summer, Trinity Hospital Twin City honored all members of the Trinity Hospital Twin City United Volunteer Auxiliary. Additionally, twelve volunteers were awarded service pins in recognition of their years of dedicated service to the hospital, and one volunteer was lauded as volunteer of the year.
Volunteers received service pins for anniversary milestones earned in 2018, and the group recognized represented a total of 185 years of volunteer service to the hospital. Donna Ross of Dennison; Roger Russell and Sherrill Struchen of New Philadelphia; and Trish Schlabach of Uhrichsville were honored for five years of service. Ruth Ryan of Dennison; Sharon & Tom Frank of Gnadenhutten; and Richard Hodkinson of Uhrichsville were recognized for 10 years of service. Bonnie Ingland of New Philadelphia and Helen Gordon of Tippecanoe were honored for 20 years of service. Iris Kerschbaumer received a service award for 40 years of service, and Tana Edwards of New Philadelphia was recognized for 45 years of service.
Trinity Hospital Twin City United Volunteer Auxiliary President Emillie Blackwood presented the Volunteer of the Year award to Dean Fisher of Uhrichsville. Fisher has been a hospital volunteer for two years, and he has faithfully served at the front desk to assist patients and visitors with their needs.
“He is always kind and friendly,” noted Blackwood of Fisher. “He is a great representative of our hospital, and he goes above and beyond when needed.”
“We are so thankful for all of our volunteers,” shared Blackwood. “Without their dedication and hard work, we would not be able to assist the hospital in funding patient care equipment.”
Community members of all ages are welcome to join the Trinity Hospital Twin City United Volunteer Auxiliary. Opportunities are available to volunteer for as little as one shift a month to several shifts a month. Officers of the United Volunteer Auxiliary include President Emillie Blackwood of Gnadenhutten, Vice President Jan Thomas of Gnadenhutten, Second Vice President Barb Besozzi of Scio, Treasurer Carolyn McCoy of Tuscarawas, Recording Secretary Delecta Ditcher of Uhrichsville, and Corresponding Secretary Jane Modon of Dennison.
