The Ladies of Charity Holy Ghost who visit the Charlotte Hall Veterans Home monthly were honored at a Volunteer Appreciation Banquet held at the Greater Waldorf Jaycees Hall. The theme was ‘Volunteers Create Magical Moments’. The luncheon honored organizations and individual volunteers for their outstanding service and contributions to veterans in 2013. It recognized all groups and individual who contributed a minimum of 24 volunteer service hours or a monetary donation of $500 or more to Charlotte Hall Veterans Home.
In addition to those who visit the veterans’ home, Holy Ghost also recognizes and thanks Nancy Roach, Sally Mack, Louise Frere and recently deceased Doris Smith for their ministry of mailing monthly cards to each birthday veteran. This ministry has proven to be very rewarding and has gained recognition from veterans who have written personal thank you notes to the Ladies. On May 30, several ladies traveled to Charlotte Hall and served lunch to the veterans in celebration of Memorial Day. Magical moments have definitely been provided for all those involved in this ministry.
