LACONIA — LRGHealthcare recently honored its volunteers at a brunch held at Pheasant Ridge Country Club in Gilford.
The event was an occasion to recognize all the efforts of the 170 volunteers, who provided 21,000 hours of service.
In recognition of these outstanding achievements, volunteers Richard Guerin and Nancy Paterno were presented with the President's Call to Service Award.
To be eligible to receive the President's Call to Service Award, awarded by the president of the United States, individuals must have completed 4,000 or more hours of volunteer service over the course of their lifetime.
