    April is National Volunteer Month, and I want to thank all the volunteers who have donated their time and talents to our agency.

    We have had more than 90 volun-teers in the past year at our Trimble County Center who have given so much to assist those in need.

    The agency has been fortunate to have assisted so many elderly and low-income people in our community. Our wonderful and committed volunteers make this possible. Thank you for contributing to our mission.
