Wesley Village in Shelton recognized its team of volunteers with a celebration during National Volunteer Week.
Wesley Village has partnered with more than 200 registered volunteers each year, ranging in ages from 14 to 104.
Celebrations for the week from April 12-16 culminated with a volunteer dinner. Volunteers honored at the dinner included residents, employees, and members of the community, and those who had reached 100 (or more) hours of volunteer service were presented with a special appreciation gift.
More than 3,800 volunteer hours
One honoree was longtime Wesley Village volunteer, Betty Wallis, 96, of Shelton. She was honored for her more than 3,800 hours of volunteer service.
Wallis was also the recipient of many past awards including the Living Treasure award, presented by the Volunteer Action Center of Valley United Way in 2005, and the Senior Wisdom Award, presented by United Methodist Homes.
