|Laura accepting her award on November 17th|
"Laura has engaged Crown Center volunteers and provided them with meaningful, fulfilling volunteer experiences."
I also have been an "ambassador" for some of the new residents who moved into the Crown Center. Laura assigns us as needed, and we show the new folks what's available here: the library (of course), our Circle@Crown Café, the fitness center, bus trips to shopping malls or eating out together, workshops available each month, the dining program, where to dump our trash. You know, all those little day-to-day things, though I think we probably have a lot more activities than most independent living retirement places. And that's thanks to Laura!
Congratulations, Laura! You deserve it!
I ran across this article just now that fits perfectly with Laura's job: Volunteering Is the Best Kept Secret for Mental Health.
