ST. MARYS — Local firefighters, police officers and transporters were invited to participate in an appreciation breakfast Tuesday morning.
St. Marys Living Center held a volunteer breakfast from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Tuesday, opening its doors to treat local volunteers to food.
“This is our volunteer and first-responders breakfast,” St. Marys Living Center Director Lorraine Fischio said. “We hold it to celebrate National Volunteer Week and to pay respects to our first-response team in the area.”
ST. MARYS — To Tri Star Career Compact Med Prep Instructor Janet Nelson, the class of 2012 is a group of 15 butterflies ready to spread their wings.
“I met them two years ago, and they were in the larva stage — they were caterpillars,” Nelson said Tuesday night at the Med Prep Pinning Ceremony. “Caterpillars have one job — to eat. These guys came to me hungry. You were hungry to learn about medicine.”
The next stage, she said, is the chrysalis stage, or the cocoon.
