St. John's Episcopal Hospital honored 55 volunteers with a luncheon on Thursday, April 27, during National Volunteers Week. Barbara Morris, President of the Rotary Club of Rockaway, delivered the keynote speech. Volunteers serve in a range of Hospital departments, including Hemodialysis, Dietary, Nursing, Admitting, Employee Health, the Hospitality Desk and many others.
