The 2016 Golden Apple Celebration took place on Saturday, April 30, 2016 at Detchon Center, Wabash College. The social hour, featuring appple sangria, began at 6 pm, followed by an Italian buffet dinner from Bon Appetit.
The Golden Apple continues the tradition of Christian Nursing Service, dating back to the early 1970s to honor volunteers for exceptional dedication to the Clinic’s mission of providing health and dental care and to preparing and delivering Meals on Wheels. This year’s recipients are:
- Jim Sexton, longtime Meals on Wheels driver coordinator
- Alma Conrad, clinic volunteer
- Linda Johnson, volunteer clinic translator
Additionally, we honored Marge Ross as she steps down from her role as assistant MOW coordinator after 25 years.
A short video, titled “A Culture of Caring,” was presented after dinner. Under the direction of Wabash College media director Adam Phipps and Jim Amidon, Wabash students Austin Myers and Carlos Rios outlined what the Clinic does, and featured stories from our patients, staff, and volunteers.
