GRAND OAKS NEWS: Honoring volunteers

By Christine Engels

Acting Activity Director

On April 16, 2015, Grand Oaks Nursing Center honored all of their volunteers.

We started our program with an introduction of our new Activity Director, Christine Engels. A prayer from Father Ron Schneider of St. Ann’s Catholic Church was performed before we were served dinner by the staff. A lovely serving of lunch-salad, chicken cordon bleu, broccoli and cheese, rolls were offered before ending with a variety of cheese cake.

We ended our program with an acknowledgment of our volunteers' many years of service. Some have been coming for 35 years. Wow, what dedication! As a community, we work together to make a better quality of life for our residents.

We want to extend an enthusiastic thank you to all of our volunteers for everything they do for our residents. Each one of them brings their own unique talents to our community, and it is greatly appreciated at Grand Oaks.
