Letter from Tennessee River Executive Director, Katy Hagstrom - May 2017

Looking back on the month of April as National Volunteer Month, The Tennessee River Chapter had a great time celebrating volunteers. Our chapter began the tradition of recognizing a Volunteer of the Month, with Jack Hunter as the chapter’s first recipient. This month, we recognize James Cauthen. Tennessee River also held our annual volunteer appreciation picnic and enjoyed the company of one another. Several awards were given for remarkable leadership:

Clara Barton Award- Don Bledsoe
Volunteer Leadership Award- Ron Lanfear & Jan Thompson
Exceptional Service Award- Michelle Balsley
Disaster Services Award- Mary Lockett
Disaster Communication Award- Jack Hunter
Rising Star Award- Foster Montgomery

At the appreciation event, volunteers with an incredible number of hours logged were also recognized.

Ed England- 6, 834 on call hours & 401 worked hours
Shirley Connolly- 559 worked hours
Foster Montgomery- 703 worked hours
Ron Lanfear- 1,052 worked hours

In 2017, Tennessee River Volunteers worked a total of nearly 15,000 hours.

A special thank you is deserved to Tennessee River volunteers. Your dedication, hard work, and commitment is reflected by the hope you have given to so many families in the past year.
