LACONIA —  In front of a crowd of over 100 supporters, CEO Margaret Franckhauser announced the three recipients of Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice's Annual Agency Awards.

The Leavitt/Knight Volunteer of the Year Award, named in honor of long time employees Charlotte Leavitt and Doreen Knight. Both Charlotte and Doreen spent time during their careers working with the volunteers of the agency and this award honors their commitment to volunteer service and the agency mission. The award was given to Ginny Caple for her many years of volunteering in the Hospice program, in particular for her work with the bereavement program. Spiritual Care Coordinator John Davies commended Ginny for her unique ability to listen when listening was one of the most important gifts one could give.

The Milham Leadership Award, named in honor of Alida Milham and her continued leadership throughout NH's Lakes Region was awarded to David Booth. David is a longtime Trustee of Central New Hampshire VNA & Hospice and has volunteered endless hours to help raise funds for the agency, to working on the finance committee and during a merger three years ago served as a key member of the merger and integration committee. Margaret Franckhauser praised "David's ability to always ask the hard questions. David is stepping off the Board of Directors this year and it is only fitting that he is recognized as a true leader."

The Shirley Bentley Outstanding Clinician Award, named in honor of Shirley Bentley for her years of dedication to the agency and the nursing profession. Shirley, a retired VNA administrator and RN had served as a trustee and has been very involved with the agency for over 30 years, recently retiring from the Board of Trustees. The award was presented to Nelda Tobin, an employee of the agency for 19 years, who embodies the ideals and values that Shirley Bentley herself displays ... empathy, compassion, and high standards of care. Bette Coffey, Wolfeboro Branch Director describes Nelda as "unassuming and modest but very deserving of this recognition."
