murray calloway hosp2MURRAY, Ky. (5/1/14) — The many volunteers of Murray-Calloway County Hospital were recognized and thanked for their 8,000 hours of service to MCCH in 2013 Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at First Presbyterian Church during the annual MCCH Volunteer Banquet.

The theme of the banquet was “Volunteers plant the seeds of kindness.” After a welcome by John Wilson, Vice President of Human Resources and invocation by Keith Travis, Vice President of Institutional Development, banquet attendees enjoyed a light luncheon. Jerry Penner, MCCH CEO, and Steve Owens, chair of the MCCH Board of Trustees, then gave expressions of appreciation before awards were handed out by Wilson and Linda Foley, Volunteer Coordinator.

The MCCH Auxiliary was formally begun in August of 1981 to serve as a volunteer organization to support MCCH. Auxiliary members donated their time and money to the hospital and its mission of providing health care to the community. Since 1981, volunteers have donated nearly 70,000 hours (almost 8 years.) to MCCH.

Volunteers were recognized for their total number of hours accumulated in their lifetime of service to MCCH (recognized by every 100 hours volunteered). Davis topped the list at the 16,100 hour level, followed by Ernestine Hargis at 13,100. Other volunteers include: Gillard Ross, 8,800 hours; Lillie Fuqua, 3,000 hours; Ila Brown, 2,500 hours; Sue Webb and Carol West, 2,200 hours each; Robert Bright and Walter Bradtke, 2,100 hours each; Betty Gallimore, 2,000 hours; Anna Coleman, 1,800 hours; Kathy Mowery and Carolyn Paschall, 1,700 hours; Jean Watkins and Barbara Williams, 1,400 hours each; Marion Bradtke , 1,300 hours; Katheryn Cleaver, 1,200 hours; Betty Hassell, 1,100 hours; Jerry Hicks, 900 hours; Ruth Daughaday and Barbara Shade, 500 hours each; Janet Nichols and Donna Whitfield, 200 hours each; Rose Ann Cook and Carol Frashefski, 100 hours each.
