Recipient's comments: "My boss called me into her office and started telling mehow proud she was of me, and I said 'Who, me?' I was in shock. I think it's wonderful that the county recognizes the volunteers and all they do because they save the county money by doing these things for free. I was very touched by the ceremony. They had all these letters read from all the people in organizations I was involved in, and my husband came with a dozen long-stemmed red roses and said he always knew I was the most beautiful person."
