2012 Oregon Governor’s Volunteer Awards Recognize Potluck in the Park, as the Regional Winner For Outstanding Lifetime Achievement

The 2012 Oregon Governor’s Volunteer Award on Friday, Nov. 9 will honor individuals and organizations from throughout the state for their commitment to serving Oregon and its people. “Oregon is made richer by the contributions of our talented and compassionate citizens,” said Gov. John Kitzhaber. “These award winners represent the best of the state—people who give their time, energy, and resources to lifting up others and making Oregon a better place to live.”   The annual Governor’s Volunteer Awards honor ordinary Oregonians who do extraordinary things and also inspire and motivate future volunteerism.
