From Susan Skora’s Blog, president and CEO of the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend:
Six outstanding volunteers received Quad City Caring Awards last night [9/28/2010] at our annual celebration, held at the i Wireless Center. Award recipients are chosen from nominees who demonstrate selflessness and a long-term commitment to service. Nominations are made by non-profit organizations, and each recipient receives a $1,000 grant for their nominating organization…
Gertrude Vogel, nominated by Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. Gertrude recently celebrated her 90th birthday. She has hardly missed a day in 20 years of volunteering at the Humility of Mary Housing, sorting donations and preparing for the next garage sale, which has grown so much it’s now held at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds.
Congratulations, Gertrude, on this well-deserved
recognition! We are both proud of you and grateful to you!
