Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s volunteer appreciation luncheon – a good time was had by all!
Congratulations to Priscilla Stephenson, this year’s recipient of the Volunteer of the Year Award (now renamed the Linda Shaw Volunteer Award). Priscilla has supported Hospitality House since its inception in 2000. She has made meals, stayed overnight, assisted with countless fundraisers and served on the Board of Directors with Linda Shaw as co-representatives from Lake Burien Presbyterian Church. She and Linda were friends since 3rd grade, so it was fitting that Linda’s close friend was the first recipient of the newly renamed award.
The guest speaker for the luncheon was former Hospitality House guest was Candis Dover-Andrews.
She read a poem from her newly published book, A Little Girl Named Candis, A Woman Who Wears Many Hats (book available for purchase here.)
