A bountiful buffet luncheon was part of the Community Caregivers’ celebration of volunteers on April 18.

Community Caregivers celebrated its dedicated volunteers at its Annual Volunteer Recognition Program and Luncheon on April 18 at the Guilderland Public Library. The theme was “Celebrating the Deep Satisfaction of Giving.”

Teacher and author Stephen Cope offered his time and talent as he expertly facilitated the well-received program. Volunteers reflected upon and shared reflections on the satisfaction of volunteer service. The volunteers enjoyed a bountiful buffet luncheon, catered by Gershon’s Delicatessen.

Community Caregivers’ Volunteer Support Committee, chaired by board member Judy Rothstein, spent weeks planning and executing the well-attended celebration.

Judy and the entire board extends its thanks to the Volunteer Support Committee members, who are volunteers themselves: Marey Bailey, Ann Cantore, Ruth Dickinson, Nancy Murphy, Sandy Sorell, Betsy Whitlock, and Carolyn Wilson.

Community Caregivers also acknowledges and thanks NBT Bank for its sponsorship of the event. Community Caregivers’ board, staff, and volunteers also appreciate the support of the Guilderland Public Library staff who helped make the event a success!
