NORTH CONWAY, NH - Memorial Hospital honored its volunteers on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at its annual Volunteer Awards Luncheon at the White Mountain Hotel and Resort in North Conway, NH. 32 volunteers received recognition for over 5600 hours of service in 2018. The Shining Star Volunteer of the Year Award was also presented.
The awards were presented by Memorial Hospital Trustee Chair Mary DeVeau and fellow Board Members Laura Jawitz, Barbara Hopkins, and Michelle O’Donnell.
The “Shining Star” Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to Barbara Butler at the event. Butler serves as a Greeter and in the hospital Gift Shop. Volunteer Coordinator Peter Waugh shared “The Shining Star Award recognizes a volunteer who has gone above and beyond to serve our patients, families, and the hospital staff. Each week Barbara brings a smile to patients, their families and friends, and staff when she greets them at the Main Entrance, or in the Gift Shop depending on what she is scheduled to do that particular day.” She corrals and cleans the wheelchairs and makes sure each patient has one (or an umbrella) at the ready when needed. She also readily fills in in the Gift Shop when needed, sometimes on a moment’s notice!” Waugh adds.
