From the desk of Jeanette Clement For Immediate Release
Last week was National Volunteer Week, a time when we pay tribute to all the people who graciously give their time and energy with no expectation of financial reward. At RJ Haney Heritage Village, we constantly call on our volunteers for help and they unfailingly rise to the occasion.
Currently we are in the throes of cleaning up the Village to prepare for our summer season. Calls were made and our volunteers responded. Dead leaves were raked up, pruned branch debris removed, some of the flower beds were tidied and gravel was raked off the lawns. Other volunteers washed the walls, the pews, the piano and the pulpit in the church, as well as the railings and windows. More helped at Haney house by dusting and washing walls and floors before putting out all the clothing, quilts and throw rugs. The Tea Room was also cleaned with volunteers washing the kitchen and the cafeteria area. More is planned for this week.
It takes a lot of hard work to spruce up our Village, and we’re extremely grateful for all the time and effort “our people” put in to make things shine. It has been said that some of the richest people in the world are not millionaires, but volunteers. However, here at Haney Village, we think our volunteers are the gold.
