April is Volunteer Appreciation Month

April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month! As all of you know we are very fortunate to have so many wonderful people in our community that volunteer here at Hardinsburg Nursing and Rehab. When walking into our facility you get a different feeling than walking into other skilled nursing facilities. You walk in and see church groups here in their free time singing with our residents. You see all the residents enjoying themselves and reciting every word to every song. You get to come to a petting zoo with a Kangaroo here in Hardinsburg because of things our Volunteers do for our residents. They truly make a difference in all of our days and we cannot thank them enough. On Thursday, April 26th at 5:30 we invite all of our Volunteers to St. Romuald Parrish Hall for our Annual Volunteer Dinner. We will be providing them with a full meal and announce who our residents have chosen as Volunteer of the Year.

Pass It On
Julie Hebert, 2011

To thank someone as kind as you,
Would take a lot of thought.
But thankfully I’ve come to find,
You’re not in need of a lot.

You don’t like presents or anything new,
You don’t even need a card.
You prefer your appreciations to be something of helpfulness,
For someone else’s regard.

Your belief is great that someone else should benefit,
From a deed well done.
With this I can see how great you have been,
To always be helping someone.

So here we are to give our thanks,
To someone we are grateful for.
May you receive everything you deserve,
We only hope you get much more.
