Backus and Windham Hospitals honor their volunteers

In the past week Backus and Windham hospitals recognized their senior volunteers for their service and dedication. "Volunteers Inspire" was the theme of the Backus luncheon April 23 honoring the 486 volunteers who work in 48 different departments at Backus. They gave 45,400 hours of service this past year and they inspire us with their caring spirit and their smiles. Windham volunteers were honored during a "Thank You Social" at the historic Grant House in Willimantic April 30. Windham has 310 volunteers working in 26 different departments who contributed more than 17,000 hours of service. These photos show a few of those who received recognition at the two events.
