Volunteer Recognition

The Potter League truly understands and appreciates the important role volunteers play in our mission and success.

Annual Appreciation Dinner

The Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner is held annually. Volunteers who have logged 50 hours or more during the previous calendar year are treated to a recognition dinner in their honor.

Volunteer Appreciation Week

National Volunteer Appreciation Week takes place each year in April. Staff enjoys surprising volunteers each day with a special treat. All volunteers are invited to stop by during this fun-filled week.

2014 Volunteer of the Year: Rosemary Trujillo

It is not easy to pick one volunteer for any award, since the Potter League is extremely fortunate to have an amazing group of people who donate their time day after day. We would like to take this opportunity to recognize a truly amazing woman as our volunteer of the year, Ms. Rosemary Trujillo.
