Eagle View Adult Center honors volunteers at annual Volunteer Recognition Event

Eagle View Adult Center honored the volunteers who help make its programs possible during the annual Volunteer Recognition Event on April 3. The theme for the 2023 event was “Teamwork Makes the Dream Work.” Volunteers were treated to a meal prepared by City employees, while Mayor Greg Mills and City Manager Michael Martinez spoke about the dedication these volunteers demonstrate each day.

Volunteers perform a wide variety of jobs at Eagle View, which uses an average of 65 each month. In 2022, 113 volunteers performed a total of 5,359 hours of service. The highlight of the Volunteer Recognition Event is the awarding of Red Sweaters for three individuals chosen as “Outstanding Volunteers” for the year. Three volunteers have received this prestigious award each year since 1996. This year, Eagle View honored Bobbi Jo Unruh, Barbara Spakoski and Joyce Belvill as its Outstanding Volunteers for the year.

Unruh, a retired 27J School District administrator, started teaching bridge lessons at Eagle View in 2015.  She introduced Duplicate Bridge to the Center in 2021. Spakoski came to Eagle View in 2012 and today serves as a greeter, in the dining room, during special events, as a member of the Senior Advisory Board, and most notably as a bingo caller. Belvill, who has been volunteering at Eagle View since 2019, acts as a receptionist at the health clinic. She is also part of the Kindness Counts group, which meets monthly performing random acts of kindness for those in the Brighton community.
