In praise of volunteers

The many parent volunteers who run children's programs throughout the year can never receive too much recognition for the work they do.

Parent volunteers at Rockburn Elementary School have a chance to win a monthly drawing.

Last month's winner was Judy Theodosakis, who won a gift certificate for Halo Dry Cleaners.

Retiring Scout leaders in Cub Pack 917 -- Denise Smith, Gail Burgtorf, Marilyn Dlugos, Anne Dougherty and Cheryl Sasscer --were recognized with a gift Scout pin.

St. John's Lane Elementary School recently "roasted" Marlene Goode at a retirement party given in her honor.

Fifty colleagues joined family and friends in sharing stories about Marlene in her 10 years as instructional assistant and tutor at the school.

Goode plans to spend her retirement at home with her husband, Charles, enjoying her three children, their spouses and her two grandsons.
