Monarch’s Beach Club Earns 2015 North Carolina Governor’s Volunteer Service Award for Dare County
The participants at Monarch’s Beach Club, a day program that offers a variety of activities and support to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, love to spend time and assist with the activities and events at a local community center in Manteo.
Volunteers at the Beach Club have spent hundreds of hours the last five years assisting with Bingo games, delivering Meals on Wheels and a variety of other activities to serve the seniors and others who attend the Dare County Center.
In recognition of that extensive volunteer service and the impact it has had on the lives of others the volunteers at Monarch’s Beach Club are the recipients of the 2015 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award for Dare County. This is the second time the dedication and desire by the participants of the Beach Club to give back has been honored with the Governor's Volunteer Service Award.
“The Beach Club has always been known as a program that gives back to the local community. The dedication and desire by people supported to volunteer has once again been recognized and we are thrilled,” said Erma Brault, an operations director at Monarch. “It is wonderful that other local community members took the time to honor them in this way.”
On April 20, local elected officials, dignitaries and a representative from the North Carolina Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service in the Office of the Governor will congratulate the volunteers and present them with their prestigious Governor’s Award during the Dare County Board of Commissioners’ meeting.
