On Friday, July 14 we said a fond farewell to long-time Director of Volunteers, Lois Hutchison. Lois started working at Messiah Village in 1989 and worked in several areas until she took leadership of the volunteer office in 2002. Since that time, we’ve recorded an amazing 415,160 volunteer hours that are valued at nearly $9 million! Hundreds of volunteers and residents attended her retirement celebration in the Chapel. President Curt Stutzman and Vice President of Gift Development Sharon Engle both made special presentations.
Lois has poured her heart and soul into volunteers, residents, guests, and fellow colleagues over these past decades and her smile will be missed. Lois plans to enjoy resting, reading, visiting family, and traveling with her husband.
As we wish Lois Godspeed, we remember that volunteers are always needed and most welcome. To learn more about volunteer opportunities, please call the Volunteer office at 717.697.4666, extension 5411.
