Volunteers Appreciation Day - 31May08
ReEntry Educational Facility (PREF) took the time today to thank
some of the many volunteers that are helping to make PREF a
success. Superintendent Michael Lloyd, Community Service
Coordinator Judy Helms, and their staff of Residents hosted
their first Volunteer Appreciation Day. The day started
with a great breakfast prepared by Dennis Brady, Culinary Arts
Instructor, and the Residents that are taking his class.
Great job guys. We then had the opportunity to hear many
of the Residents that took the time to thank the Volunteers for
all they have been doing for them since PREF got started.
As a volunteer, it is a great feeling, knowing that you are
appreciated for the time you take to help out, and the Residents
really let us know how we are appreciated. It makes it all
worth the long drives, knowing you are making a difference in
someone life, even considering their circumstances. Again,
Mr. Lloyd and PREF put on a great event. Thank you.
For those of you
that do not know, Judy Helms is retiring at the end
of June this year. I have no idea on how Mr. Lloyd and
PREF is going to get along without her, because she has been
Mr. Lloyd's "Go To" person for any project needing
volunteers. Judy has always seemed to came thru for
him and the PREF Residents and in my opinion is one of the
reasons that PREF has been a success. She has been a
blessing to all of us that have had the opportunity to know
her and she will be missed.
We need your
help! If you would like to be a volunteer, teacher,
tutor, mentor or instructor at PREF, please contact PREF's
Community Service Coordinator.
