SNELLVILLE – Cathy Rickman has been named Senior Center Senior Center Volunteer of the Year.
The more than 30-year Snellville resident accepted the honor from Mayor and Council at Monday’s council meeting.
Rickman is often found at the front desk of the Senior Center and frequently calls Bingo games.
“Her willingness to be wherever she is needed has been such a contribution to the success of the Senior Center,” Senior Center Director Kathi Gargiulo said. “If not for volunteers like Cathy, we would not be able to provide the amount and the quality of programs that we currently offer.”
Rickman also volunteered regularly at her church as a youth advisor, a counselor, in the woman’s club and as part of the annual craft auction. She enjoys making wreaths, cards, scarfs and other crafts. She also enjoys cross-stitching, scrapbooking and painting.
“She has often come at the last minute and shows up with a smile on her face,” Gargiulo said. “Cathy has done an exceptional job in going above and beyond to help our community and we truly appreciate all of her hard work and dedication.”
