Karen Earnshaw of FACC opened the informal ceremonies, while a slide show played at her side, featuring the various volunteer groups and their accomplishments.

High points: 3,177 volunteers in the area, at last “official count,” gave more than 131,000 hours of their time. The dollar amount on that service is about $1.7 million.

Earnshow presided over moments of silence to honor Karen Lyn, former director of Food Share who passed away April 6, honoring Lyn’s dedication to ending hunger in this community.
