Hilltop Health Care Center hosted a lunch Wednesday, April 24, at Wally’s Café in Watkins to celebrate their 55 senior volunteers. This corps of individuals serve a number of roles at the residential facility, and they put in around 2,500 volunteer hours in the past year (the equivalent of a full-time employee). Susan Schneider is the volunteer coordinator, and she oversees these senior volunteers as well as junior volunteers who are school-age.
Volunteers come from much the same communities as do residents. Many are from the immediate Watkins area, but some come from farther away. Thank you to all who volunteer!

In 1775, the Continental Congress allocated a time for prayer in forming a new nation. Over the years, there have been calls for a day of prayer, including from President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. On April 17, 1952, President Harry Truman signed a bill proclaiming the National Day of Prayer into law in the United States. President Reagan amended the law in 1988, designating the first Thursday of May each year as the National Day of Prayer.
