Lancaster fortunate to have such great volunteers

I have been very saddened recently to see the obituaries of two of my good friends, Connie Francavilgia and Sarah Hunter. I worked with the two ladies as volunteers at Springs Memorial Hospital during my early teen years. They as well as my late grandmother, Reba Ballard, gave countless hours to serve as volunteers at the hospital.

It was always amazing to see how all of these ladies loved to give back to the community. They are to be commended and praised for their time given and to helping set a precedent for the younger generation that we are a part of today. I learned so much about customer service from these ladies and volunteering there helped shape my career today.

I am also very proud to see all the volunteers who help to make the downtown association function.  The street markets are set up by volunteers like Nancy Howell, Mark Plyler, Scott Sistare and countless others involved who make Lancaster a great attractive place to live and work. I am proud to call it home.
