HutchCares holding appreciation banquet March 27

HutchCares: Living At Home keeps on giving at its Appreciation Banquet in honor of its volunteers.The banquet is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 27, 2012, at Fairlanes Baptist Church, 3000 Fairlanes Blvd., in Borger.There will be live entertainment provided by John Alexander and Linda Cox, along with a silent auction beginning at 6:30 p.m. for volunteers and guests to enjoy.In 2002, former pastor of Keeler Baptist Church, Dr. Paul Anderson, created an organization that focuses completely on helping senior citizens 65 years and older to live safely and independently in their homes for as long as possible.Volunteers make sure everyday things such as visits, correspondence, home maintenance, shopping, transportation, mail management, ramps and railings, and phone calls are available for senior citizens.According to HutchCares Director Kim Cook, the organization and its volunteers follow one saying, “neighbors helping neighbors.” This insures senior citizens stay out of facilities, allowing them to continue to live at home, taking part in the lives and activities of their community.Volunteers and their spouses will receive free admission. Admission for non-volunteers is $10 per person. Come and celebrate those who serve and support the senior adults of Hutchinson County.To find out more about the HutchCares appreciation banquet, more about the organization, or volunteering with the organization, call 677-1708 or like them on Facebook.
