On October 17, the Hollywood Senior Center honored its volunteers at its 2014 Volunteer Appreciation Party. Last year, more than 165 HSC volunteers dedicated more than 9,800 hours of volunteer service in the community. Their support enables HSC to fulfill its mission of serving older adults, their caregivers and the neighboring community through education, information, health and wellness, recreation, nutrition and social services.
The volunteers enjoyed lunch provided by party sponsor Calaroga Terrace. Attendees were entertained by Golden Harvest Music, thanks to Care Oregon Advantage.
Each year, the HSC recognizes a select group of outstanding volunteers for their commitment and support by adding their names to the HSC “Hollywood Stars” Volunteer Recognition Plaque. This year the special honors went to: Jim Harper, Linda Jones, Rita Bhatia and Tom Hilleary.
Local businesses also joined in honoring our volunteers by donating door prizes for the event. This year everyone took home a prize! Deep appreciation and thanks got to the following businesses for their support: Dr. Gonzales Dentistry, A-Boy, Milleas Estates, Wee Works, Steve and Betty Colburn, LemonTree, Ross Hollywood Dignity Memorial, Hollywood Neighborhood Association, Edward Jones Investments-Brandon Wooters and Tamara Still, Laurelwood Brewing Company, Rosey Retirement Resources, MacPCX and Mary Lindsley.
