Valentine's Day has become a special time for board members at the Cedaredge Senior Center to name a man and a woman as sweethearts (volunteers honored for their dedicated service at the meal site).
Jack Bennett received this special recognition for faithfully arriving early each Monday or Tuesday to help set up tables and chairs to get the dining room ready for the noon meal.
He said he's been doing this for about 10 years. Why? He said, "Somebody's got to do it!"
Kay Callahan was also chosen by the board for this honor. She usually comes to the center for every meal and has done so for the past five years. When contacted the day before, she willingly does any of the tasks she is asked to do and said, "I'm always happy to help wherever needed!"
Honorees were presented with a basket of several gift items and applauded by those present.blog comments powered by Disqus
