The volunteer of the year is selected out of the 12 Volunteers of the Month. Ms. Frances Horn was selected for HARD Board of Directors “2010 Volunteer of the Year” for her volunteer work in the Senior Adult Program at the Kenneth C. Aitken Senior Center where she has been a dedicated volunteer since October 2001. Fran works tirelessly on Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. working at the front desk and in the Bingo Program. Tuesday is one of the busiest days at the Senior Center and Fran is able to multi-task with ease. She assists participants with their appointments, provides general information on the Senior Center and classes, does class registration, answers the phone and performs clerical work. After working at the front desk in the morning, Fran proceeds to help out in the Bingo Program where she sells bingo cards, verifies winners and distributes prizes and yet runs the snack bar between games.
Fran also heads up our Senior Health Screening provided by the Senior Support Program of Tri-Valley. She works closely with the nurses of the Program and coordinates the appointment schedule for the first Tuesday of each month when those services are provided. If all of the above is not enough, Fran is an integral part of the Kenneth C. Aitken Senior Center’s casino coach tours and volunteers for many special events during the year that include the Spring and Fall Flea Market and the Flu Shot Clinic. Fran Horn is a retired school secretary and the Senior Adult Program is very fortunate to have her as their dedicated volunteer and a friendly face at the Center where she has made a positive impact on the staff, volunteers and participants.
