One of my favorite times of the Red Cross year is quickly approaching. On June 1, we will be gathering to celebrate the service of our volunteers. This year we are going to try something different and a little more laid back than previous years, and hopefully a lot of fun!
After surveying volunteers on how they’d like to be recognized, the consensus was to keep it simple. So this year, we are going to cook out and spend time playing what I believe could be considered our true national pastime - Corn Hole. That, along with some other fun activities will be how we enjoy a beautiful June evening.
The main purpose of gathering will be to take time to recognize our incredible volunteers who give so much of themselves to help friends, neighbors and strangers in times of need. We have a lot to celebrate this year. This chapter performed magnificently during the wildfires in the fall and delivered HOPE to so many who had lost everything.
We, the American Red Cross, are our volunteers. Without you, we could not function and deliver comfort to those in their time of need. Mark your calendar for June 1st and look for more details in your inbox soon.
See you then!
Regional Chief Operations Officer
