News and Notes: Campus Park drive participants receive Governor’s Award for service
On Wednesday, April 23, participants at Monarch’s Campus Park Drive day program got a special visit from the Mayor of Monroe -Bob Kilgore.
He presented 10 people we support with the Governor’s Volunteer Certificate and thanked them for their service to the community.
Kilgore told those at Campus Park Drive that the best part about his job as mayor is the chance to be out in the community and thanked them for what they do.
“You provide such a service to the community and I don’t know what we’d do without you,” he said.
The awards went to those who volunteer with Meals on Wheels, a service Monarch has participated in for 14 years in Monroe, as well as Habitat for Humanity.
“This was a great opportunity for those we support to be appreciated and celebrated,” said Lacey Gulick, operations manager at Campus Park Drive. “The fact that it was given to them by the mayor made them excited and it is an honor they can share with family and friends.”
