Volunteer Appreciation Month

April was volunteer recognition month, and we had two great celebrations to honor our volunteers!

In Denver:

“We have so many outstanding volunteers that it is challenging to single out just a few,” said Amelia Schafer, interim executive director of the Colorado Chapter. “But it is important to let these amazing people know how important they are to our mission, and how much we value their contributions.”

Volunteers recognized at the Denver event include:

  • Misty Hart, of Denver, and Katie Kerns, of Denver (“Fantastic Facilitator” Award)
  • Georgina Morrissey, of Boulder (“Boulder Office SPARK” Award)
