2017 Volunteer of the Year: Barbara Kean
Volunteer of the Year is Barbara Kean. The award was presented at the volunteer lunch. Barbara is an ambassador for us who exemplifies kindness and concern.
“When the law firm she worked for closed, she was devastated. After six months, she decided to come to the BSC. She remembers opening the front door and feeling, “When one door closes, another door opens”. When asked what she likes best, Barbara said the kind people. She said that it is a place that makes her happy, that she loves the classes and the good feeling she gets when she’s here.”
Commendations also went to Corey Cohen, Frank d’Entremont, Rita d’Entremont, Regina Frawley, Carol Fullerton, Phil Fullerton, Rhona Hirschowitz, Charlotte Millman, Michelle Moshin, Fran Pechenick, Vera Sharma, Eleanor Small, Muriel Stark, David Weinberg, Louise Weinberg, Ada White and Roberta Winitzer.
