More than 62 million Americans give of themselves through volunteer service in community, state, and national efforts.  This week is National Volunteer Week and WGEL spoke with Mark Ayers, Director of Human Resources for the Bond County Health Department, about an event to recognize health department volunteers this Thursday. Ayers said the health department currently has 31 volunteers who give of their time, including evenings and weekends, to be a part of their hospice team.  A special luncheon is planned for Thursday to recognize one of their most valued resources. During the luncheon, the Volunteer of the Year award will be presented and two very special Longevity Awards will be given. If you want to volunteer with the health board, call 664-5020 or drop by the Bond County Health Department building at 1520 South 4th Street.
