Clark Honors Volunteers for Years of Service
For Immediate Release
September 16, 2005
The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute honored 11 volunteers for their service to the Clark on Thursday. Thirty-six Information Desk volunteers have given more than 2,450 hours of service to the Clark in the past year. Working three shifts a day, volunteers provide information on the Clark and the local region to visitors year-round. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Information Desk, which began as an initiative promoted and run by volunteers.
At an afternoon wine and cheese reception, Susan Pike, visitor services coordinator, and Christine Hoek, deputy director for external affairs, presented certificates to volunteers reaching milestones in their years of service at the Clark. Recognized for 15 years of continuous volunteer work were Franz Burnet-Gocht, Mary Flynt, Nancy Hart, Barbara Hyman, Marjorie Hurley, Elizabeth Patterson, Lucy Stanton, and Therise Trahan. Bob Bach, Moira Buoni, and Jid Sprague were honored for their five years of service. Elda Gazzaniga, who volunteers in the department of external affairs, was recognized for her 29 years of weekly service.
