Volunteers in Action

Volunteer Spotlight

Each month we highlight a volunteer individual or group that has made a significant impact on our city programs.

This month, we honor the Munson Center Dance Committee and Special Event Volunteers, consisting of Jimmy Riley, Liz Ambrose, Flora Seamans, and Anna Fernandez (pictured above; not pictured—Velia Autrey, Lajos Kiss, Jean and Ray Lopez) who make sure that every month we have an amazing dance for seniors at the Munson Center, and every quarter, we put on an amazing appreciation for all our volunteers. This past month, these two events were combined. Thank you to all the volunteers and staff who make these events possible!
