The hard work of those who help others on a regular basis was honored Friday by Lubbock's Volunteer Center. Our own Abner Euresti emceed the luncheon at the McInturff Center. The big award of the day went to Richard Ligon for his work to start the Ronald McDonald House in Lubbock. He received the Ray J. Diekemper Lifetime of Community Service Award.
"One of the primary goals of the Volunteer Center is to enhance volunteerism, promote volunteerism and this is one of our premier events to do both, to recognize volunteers and to promote volunteerism," said Richard Galle, Executive Director of the Volunteer Center.
KCBD also received an award for business commitment.
