Shore Medical Center Honors Volunteers at Annual Recognition Dinner

November 30, 2011

Each year, more than 350 volunteers offer their time, skills and compassion to keep Shore Medical Center operating smoothly and ensuring patients and visitors receive the best healthcare experience possible. Shore Medical Center, in partnership with the Somers Point Rotary Club, recently held its Annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner at Greate Bay Country Club in Somers Point, NJ.

Shore Medical Center Vice President of Human Resources Alan Beatty hosted the evening, presenting awards to several outstanding volunteers. Barbara Diefenbeck was honored with The Board of Trustees Chairman Award, which is presented each year to a volunteer who has generously dedicated himself or herself to Shore Medical Center. Since 1990, Diefenbeck has donated more than 6,000 hours of service to Shore.

LaRue Frick was presented with the Somers Point Rotary Club’s Service Above Self Award, which is given annually to a volunteer who consistently goes above and beyond to offer assistance whenever called upon. Since 1997, Frick has contributed more than 7,000 hours of service as a Shore volunteer.
