Aging program volunteers honored

About 225 Sheboygan County Aging Services program volunteers were honored recently at the annual recognition dinner, held this year at the Blue Line Ice Center.

These volunteers are the people who give medical transportation to elderly; provide friendly visits and support to isolated, home-bound seniors; act as guardians to help make decisions and advocate for people who are unable to do so for themselves; assist with the multitude of tasks necessary to run eight county senior dining/fellowship sites; help courthouse visitors as greeters; give clerical assistance; conduct health promotion classes, and deliver hot meals to rural elderly who cannot make their own.

Nutrition Program Supervisor, Dale Deterding, saluted the 298 volunteers who, in 2014, provided an estimated 16,821 hours of service, resulting in an approximate $252,315 savings to the County Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) and the County Elder Services departments savings passed on to Sheboygan County tax payers.

Special recognition was given to the three volunteer Cedar Grove Senior Dining managers: LaVern Prinsen, Delores Meinen and Carolyn Bruggink. And to the volunteer Oostburg Senior Dining manager, Joan Sanders.

Along with awards and door prizes, volunteers enjoyed an evening of good food and live entertainment.

Steve Hamer provided piano entertainment, courtesy of Shorewest Realtors. The Sheboygan South High School Jazz Ensemble I, gave a big-band concert. Three Guys and a Grill catered the dinner, with assistance from ADRC staff and Sheboygan Falls Kiwanis Club members.
