Last week, Greenspring retirement community hosted its 7th President’s Service Awards reception for volunteers who live at the community. Many of the residents volunteer by running one of 200+ clubs at the community, delivering and/or sorting mail at the community, participating in the Resident Council, or by sharing their time and talent in some other way. The residents who volunteered more than 100 hours in 2011 were honored last Tuesday with a President’s Service Award in either Bronze (100-249 hrs), Silver (250-499 hrs) or Gold (500+hrs). One lifetime award as also given out at the community to Evelyn Jackson, who manages the Treasure Chest (she has volunteered more than 4,000 hours at Greenspring).
More than 140 guests were in attendance including Executive Director, Robin Gliboff. There were a total of 204 awards given out. The website for history of the award is http://www.presidentialserviceawards.gov.
