Senior Companions were honored at their annual recognition luncheon Friday at the Terrace between Escanaba and Gladstone. Leading the program were Senior Companion Director Connie Maule and Senior Companion Coordinator Linda Paulin. Senior Companion volunteers provide companionship and assistance to frail elderly, mental health clients, assisted living home residents, nursing home residents, foster care residents and adult day center residents. Here are photos of some of the volunteers and their years of service.

Fourth annual Gilbert Sablack Volunteer of the Year award was given to Mary Break, Escanaba. From left, Linda, Connie, Mary, Gil's widow Rosemary, and CAA Executive Director Julie Moberg.
