The Volunteer Department would like to thank talented teen volunteer, Reidlee Lynn, for sharing her time and talent to create beautiful, hand-painted rocks for the other dedicated volunteers at Optimal Hospice Care. "April marks Volunteer Appreciation season for those who donate time and compassion to create a better quality of life for the patients in our care," shares Rhonda Frankhouser, Volunteer Coordinator with Optimal Hospice Care. "Each year we try to come up with a new, fun theme to show our appreciation at the annual luncheon. This years theme was "Volunteers Rock," which naturally gave us the idea to create these creative, handpainted rocks as a small gift. We knew Reidlee was just the talented young volunteer to enlist for this job."
Reidlee Lynn, a junior at Bakersfield Christian High School, donated over fifteen hours creating these small works of art. Each had it's own one-of-a-kind theme, but all were emblazened with the Volunteers Rock insignia. Reidlee is a multi-talented young woman who enjoys reading, art, and running for the varsity cross country and track teams at BCHS. As an honor student with lots of extracurricular activities to her credit, Reidlee will have her choice of interested colleges to choose from. As of today, she is considering studying pharmacy or architectural engineering. No matter what she ends up doing with her life and career, the community in which she serves will be fortunate to have her support. Reidlee's determination to share her time and talent is a great example of how teens can get involved and give back!
