Newhouse – Volunteer Appreciation

Newhouse celebrated the work of its volunteers on April 28th.  Flowers, certificates and a small gift item were given to those volunteers in attendance along with words that recognized those that give their time, talent and treasure.  Volunteer hand prints were captured to remind Newhouse of their “imprint” on its mission.
