2016 Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast

 

The theme for this year's Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast was "Volunteers Help Drive Our City!" Appropriate, since 2015 marked one of the City of St. Peters' high points for volunteer participation. Our volunteers donated 9,631 hours of their time in 2015—the most hours since 2004 when the City hosted the U.S. Olympic Diving Trials. We had 193 official “regular” volunteers last year and another 600 “episodic” volunteers (who help at one-time special events). Our regular volunteers saved the City nearly $70,000 last year—an increase of almost $18,500 over the previous year!

 

Just how important are our volunteers? Our City staff tells you in THIS MUST-SEE VIDEO. The video drew tears and applause at this year's Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast, where we honored all of our volunteers and handed out awards.

 

For 2015, 12 volunteers were recognized with Presidential Volunteer Service Awards for reaching at least 100 hours of service: Luvenia Henry (Gold level for 500-plus hours), Brenda McDonnell (Silver level, for 250-plus hours), Claire Foster, Debbie Needham, Dottie Morelli, Janet Fischer, Joan Smith, Julie McMahon, Kyle McGinley, Maggie Baber, Mary Beth Rogers and Rita Konertz-Lee.

 

Luvenia Henry also received the President's Lifetime Achievement Award for 4,000-plus hours of total volunteer service.
