Dawson County Senior Services gave thanks to its volunteers during a reception at the Margie Weaver Senior Center in Dawsonville Nov. 2.

“The Margie Weaver Senior Center is very blessed to have the quality of volunteers to assist our senior clients,” said Dawson County Senior Services Director Dawn Pruett.

“Our volunteers treat our clients as family. The love, fellowship, guidance and friendship they show to them is exceptional.”

Volunteers recognized include Jim and Carol Houtchens, Judy Proctor, Helen Anderson, Judy Brandon, Sandra Davenport, Joe Gaines, Carole Kinzie, Betty Losh, Clara Rowell, Barbara Wallace and Lynn Campbell. The Houtchens, who deliver Meals on Wheels to Senior Services’ homebound clients, were honored as the Volunteers of the Year.

“We cannot thank you enough for this recognition,” said Carol Houtchens. “We truly feel blessed for you giving us the opportunity and enabling us to give back to the community. Through the years, we’ve made wonderful friends and look forward to seeing them each week as they have become a huge part of our lives.”

Dawson County Manager David Headley, who spoke at the reception, thanked the volunteers.

“One of the greatest gifts you can give is your time,” he said. “Everyone in this room has made a difference in someone’s life. And, you, as a volunteer and because of your selfless kindness, make a change the world can be grateful for.” In addition to hearing from Headley, guests were able to meet with Commissioners Sharon Fausett, Jimmy Hamby and Julie Hughes Nix and enjoy food and fellowship following the ceremony.
