Barton volunteers honored for thousands of hours of service

At a general membership meeting of the Barton Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, members who have made significant progress in their volunteer hours to the hospital were honored.

Margaret Anton, cashier at The Attic, received a pin for 15,000 hours of service. Chris Henderson, chairman of the hospital’s gift shop, and Cathy Vogelgesang, front desk volunteer, were honored for donating 4,000 hours each.

Reaching the 1,000-hour mark were Shari Anthony, Larry Coffman, Alberta Finnegan, Katherine Honorof and Doug Morris.

Contributing 500 hours of service in or for the medical facility were Marie Foster, scholarship committee chair, and Cindy Moore. All of Barton’s other volunteers have contributed selfless hours for the hospital and were awarded gifts at the luncheon at Mirabelles.

The men and women of the Auxiliary continue to serve the hospital in its various venues: The Attic, the gift shop, front desk, junior volunteers working within the hospital, the skilled nursing facility, the Community Clinic, making cheeseballs for the annual Holiday Faire and other ongoing departments and projects. All funds produced by these activities provide assistance to Barton Hospital services to the community.

Members of the community interested in volunteering toward Barton Hospital’s services are welcome to pick up an application from the hospital’s front desk or The Attic. For information, call Dan Kerr at (775) 588-2376.
