REACH’s Outstanding Volunteer of the Year, Eileen Anderson
There are several volunteers who work at REACH in one or more of their volunteer based programs and services. During the Hawley Community Award Banquet, REACH recognized their volunteers and one in particular who had put in the most hours in 365 days. “There were ten to fifteen volunteers who put in over 300 hours this year,” Peggie stated, but the one to tip the scale hit 399.9 hours, and that Outstanding Volunteer is Eileen Anderson. “I was very surprised, but I don’t know that I deserve it. There are other volunteers who were more deserving than me. All the volunteers should get an award as they’re all deserving,” Eileen commented and went on to say, “It was very, very humbling.”
