Over the past year, KMCH has partnered with Smitty’s to honor several volunteers in the community as Valued Volunteers. Those eight volunteers were honored at a special banquet on Wednesday night at Fireside in Manchester. Angie Zehr was named one of our Valued Volunteers for her involvement in Girl Scouts and West Delaware Friends of Music.
Hank and Peggy Brammand were also recognized as Valued Volunteers. Hank says they originally volunteered to be the coordinators of the Delaware County Food Bank five years ago because they wanted to something to do.
Our other KMCH Valued Volunteers last year included Darla Gaskill, who volunteers with West Delaware schools; Marcheta Cooey Lux, who has served Lake Delhi and Delhi Methodist Church; Michele DeBlieck, who is involved with the Manchester Rhubarb Fest committee, Red Hat Ladies and Festival of Trees; Jackie Sherman, who volunteers with Second Helpings, Manchester Lions Club and Rhubarb Fest; Cheryl “Beaner” Harris, who helps the elderly with their gardens and groceries, and helps at the Common Grounds Coffee House and Lamont Kids Center; and Gloria Rattenborg, who volunteers with the Delaware County Food Bank, American Cancer Society and serves as the parish nurse at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Manchester.
