LUM Celebrates Volunteers

LUM Annual Volunteer Appreciation Reception

As a part of National Volunteer Month, Wes Tillett, LUM executive director, and Terri Anderson, LUM volunteer coordinator, hosted the LUM Volunteer Appreciation Reception. It was heartfelt tribute to our devoted volunteers. This special event provided an opportunity for LUM staff and board members to express personal gratitude to each volunteer in attendance with remarks, awards, and refreshments.

Special recognition was given to the volunteers who served the most hours. Leading the way are Rob & Nina Morgan, who volunteered more than 1,000 hours; and Larry Guentert, who volunteered 335 hours. There were also five volunteers who served more than 250 hours, including Theresa & Jeff Landis, Tricia Sembroski, and John & Barb Sperry; and three who served more than 200 hours, including Carol Hahm, Kim Reneau, and Jean Tyner.

America’s volunteers embody the core values that define our Nation:  an optimism that is tested yet resolute; a courage that digs deep when we need it most; and an unshakeable faith in one another, our Nation, and the future we can build together. 
During National Volunteer Week, we celebrate the millions of selfless Americans who keep faith in all of us and give their time, service, and hearts to make sure no one is left behind.
We remember that even one act of service — big or small — can make a difference. 
Volunteers spread hope and, in the process, inspire so many to give back to their communities.  I encourage everyone to look for ways to volunteer in their own communities, show up for one another, and step up for those in need.
