The 2017 Volunteer Recognition Night is Tuesday, October 10 at the LPN conference center.

This includes people who serve on boards and committees, plant and maintain flowerbeds, pick up trash and many other volunteer opportunities. Invitations are being sent to those we know are volunteers. But if you’ve volunteered and not received an invitation, please know you are welcome to attend, and bring your spouse or significant other. The event includes a social time at 6 p.m., dinner at 6:30 p.m. and a short program. RSVP by calling the LPN front desk at 641-755-2080.
