Congratulations to St. Patrick Catholic High School Sophomore Carmen DeStazio and SPCHS Senior Adesyn Hall for receiving Certificates of Appreciation during the Community and Military Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony, hosted by the Armed Forces Retirement Home. Both received Certificates of Appreciation for their volunteer service in 2017.

Their certificates read: “For excellence in your exceptional volunteer support as one of our first military teen volunteers. Your display of professionalism was greatly admired by our staff and our nation’s veterans at the AFRH-G.”

Carmen selected the Armed Forces Retirement Home as her volunteer service agency this year, and she was part of the organization’s pilot program for teen volunteers. Some of her favorite volunteer activities at the home were the holiday dances, the BINGO Saturdays, and the group drum circles.
