Our United States military thinks nothing of spending trillions of dollars (trillion = 12 zeroes) to develop technology that will allow our forces to move “under the radar.” These undercover forces are crucial to the success of a mission.
Here at Bay Village we have our own “under the radar” persons who are crucial to the success of who we are as a community. These are the persons who enable us to live out our mission to be a community giving glory to God. These persons exhibit in their daily lives God’s caring love for others, regardless of the “labels” we might wear!
Who are these “under the radar” persons? They are our VOLUNTEERS!!!! We have more than 200 (over 50%) of our residents who donated 30,000 volunteer hours in the past 12 months to make sure each of us is cared for in a variety of ways. These are the volunteers who make certain we have services such as daily mail delivery, a rich menu of entertainment and educational events (on and off campus), communication fliers, library resources, worship services, guest tours for prospective residents, Gift Shop, Down Under, gardens, floor representatives, Health Center visitation and activities, Resident Council and committees. How rich and full our life is because of the selfless gift of these “under the radar” folk!
On Thursday, May 7, at 12:30 p.m., an appreciation luncheon will be held in the BV Dining Room as a gesture of thanks for the “TRILLIONS” of caring hours given by these dedicated servants of God.
THANKS BE TO GOD FOR OUR VOLUNTEERS!!!
