Barb is our hero!

May 25, 2006

Shhhh! Don't tell Barb, but we planned a surprise for her. On Tuesday, May 23, 2006, a representative from the American Red Cross presented a Certificate of Recognition to Barb. She had been nominated in March as our Community Hero and Work Place Hero.

While Barb didn't receive the Red Cross's Hero award, we were told that the nominations were quite impressive. Some of the awardees had performed life saving techniques on other persons! But, no matter what, we think Barb is a very special hero to us all, as well as to those she serves.
