Appreciation Dinner thanks volunteers on behalf of SLI, SLE, and Asbury
Volunteers who have a heart for the Silver Lake Institute (SLI), the Asbury Retreat Center, and the Silver Lake Experience (SLE) make it possible for each to serve their communities with a minimal of paid employees.|
Volunteers make the Silver Lake Institute (SLI) all the more attractive and beautiful without increasing its costs to the taxpayers. Volunteers supplement the small paid staff and make the current efficiency possible. Love of community and the beauty of its surroundings inspire our eager volunteers.
The small paid staffs of Asbury and SLI combined could not put on what the volunteers now make possible!
SLI provides a special "Thank You" to their volunteers and all volunteers by way of the Annual Appreciation Dinner. This year's Dinner was this past Thursday, August 18th, 2022. Each year the opportunity is given for anyone who has observed someone doing good work as a volunteer to nominate that person as a Silent Hero who, on this one occasion, receives accolades, applause, and a Certificate of Appreciation for their volunteer work.
This year we honored three SLI residents as Silent Heros. They each were presented with plaques by their nominator and a representative of the SLI Trustees (this year SLI Trustees Kevin Colburn, Bill Schaefer, and Jill Knitter). Those who received plaques and became Silent Heroes were: Joe Szwaczkowski, Doug Wilson, and Chuck Dusel.
