We celebrated the hard work and dedication of our amazing volunteers this week! On Wednesday, we had over 120 attend our annual banquet held at the Waldorf Jaycees. Groups and individual volunteers were honored for their service to our veterans either through the gift of time, money, or resources.

Our guest speaker included MD Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary, George Owings, who thanked our selfless volunteers for serving over 22,000 hours in 2016! He also took time to recognize any Vietnam veterans in the room who had not received their "Welcome Home" pin and proclamation. DCVA Medical Center's Assistant Medical Director Jereme Whiteman was also present to acknowledge the dedication and heartfelt love that our veterans receive.

Though awards were presented in various categories such as Above & Beyond and Circle of Excellence, we'd like to take this time to congratulate our top recipients for their work done in 2016. For their outstanding financial support, congratulations to Cruisin' Southern Maryland for Veterans for winning Organization of the Year. For their incredible amount of service hours, Encounter Christian Center was also awarded Organization of the Year for the second year in a row! Finally, our top volunteers included Michael Hughes and Shirley Vatter, who both have been awarded our Volunteers of the Year for serving well over 500 hours!

Charlotte Hall and its residents would not be the same without these selfless people and we hope they know just how much we appreciate them!
