2023 Volunteer Summer Celebration Picnic

July 24, 2023

July 5, 2023 was an afternoon to remember full of smiles, laughter and music. It was a wonderful afternoon of togetherness as we celebrated our amazing team of volunteers for their time and commitment over this past year. Our annual Volunteer Summer Celebration picnic was once again held at the LEX and we saw over 60 of our volunteers, along with their family and friends, come out to celebrate with us. We enjoyed good food, games, prizes and great conversations, and the heat of the summer just could not stop the fun. We want to give a special thanks to our special guest performance The Harry Peterson Band for coming out and putting on a great show, enjoyed by all.
