St. Vincent Kokomo hosted its annual volunteer recognition luncheon on April 24 in celebration of National Volunteer Week, April 23-29. The theme for the event was “Volunteers — Giving Time and Touching Hearts.” The 150 volunteers at St. Vincent Kokomo, ranging in age from 15 to 101, donated 22,000 hours of service in 2016. This year, a special group of five volunteers — all 90 years old or older — was recognized. Together, Marie Castor, Dorothy Pickett, Peggy Cameron, Wanda Sandy and Carolyn Eshelman have volunteered for more than 180 years and have donated more than 41,000 volunteer hours. “These ladies, along with the additional 145 volunteers, certainly exemplify this year’s theme,” Margie Johnson, St. Vincent Kokomo president, said in a news release. “The dedication to our health ministry by every volunteer reflects our focus of delivering to our patients and families extraordinary patient care every day. I cannot thank them enough, and I’m so proud they are part of our health ministry.” To learn more about volunteer opportunities at St. Vincent Kokomo, call Harry Kenworthy, volunteer coordinator, at 765-456-5791.
