In honor of National Volunteer Month, we would like to feature one of the important members of our Cedar Haven volunteer team. If you are frequently at Cedar Haven, you would probably recognize Petey, one of our regular volunteers. Here are a few of the comments our staff had to share in appreciation for Petey and his dedication to volunteering at Cedar Haven:
“Petey has been a member of the Cedar Haven family for years, and ever since he started volunteering 2 years ago he has become a family member to many of our residents. The yarn circle ladies look at him as one of them and he is a big help in the craft room.” – Marie Anderson, Director of Therapeutic Recreation
“Every Wednesday, Petey and I wind the grandfather clock in the lobby. If it wasn’t for him, I would probably forget! He sits in the lobby once he finishes his jobs for the day and we all enjoy chatting with him when we walk by. Everyone knows Petey!” – Marrissa T.
Petey shared that his favorite aspect of volunteering at Cedar Haven is helping with the exercise class, which takes place once a month. Petey also enjoys helping residents to the craft room and assisting with the yarn circle events. Petey’s mother was a resident at Cedar Haven and he said that he chose to keep coming to Cedar Haven after she passed away because he came to like the residents and the staff members very much.
Please join us in thanking Petey for his volunteer efforts at Cedar Haven! If you are interested in learning more about our volunteers and how you can become a volunteer at Cedar Haven, visit our Volunteer Page.
