On June 26, 2014, the Greater Medford VNA was presented the “Business Partner of the Year” award by the Medford Council on Aging and Medford Senior Citizens, Inc., during their Volunteer Celebration.
Pam Kelly, Director of Elder Affairs, introduced Mayor McGlynn and he in turn presented the award to members of the Greater Medford VNA team.
Not only was a plaque, and silver plate with the Medford town seal engraved on it presented, but an official citation stating, “Be it hereby known to all that the Mayor, on behalf of the citizens of Medford offers sincere congratulations to Greater Medford Visiting Nurse Association in recognition of: Over 100 years of outstanding and dedicated service to the Medford Community. The people of Medford extend their very best wishes and express the hope for future good fortune and continued success in all endeavors”. The plaque read, “In Appreciation Of Your Outstanding and Dedicated Service to the Senior Citizens of Medford”.
William Connors, CEO said, “I am thrilled and humbled to receive this award. The Greater Medford VNA sees itself as a partner to the Medford COA in serving the citizens of Medford. We have been serving Medford residents for over 114 years and our mission has remained the same to provide the compassionate and high quality home care to our patients. The work of people like Mary Napoli and Lynn Schuster from our agency is a prime example of this high mission and standard.”
The Volunteer Celebration recognized the “Volunteer of the Year” and “Retiree” also. The Delvena Theatre Company presented “The Incredible Mae West”, which was enjoyed by many attendees.
