Georgia Bundschuh, resident, Diane Gunsolley, Aberdeen Village chaplain, William Walter, resident, and Terri Monrad, community volunteer, pose together at the volunteer appreciation event.
We recently said “thank you” to the many resident and community volunteers who make a difference in the lives of those who have made Aberdeen Village their home with a fun luncheon and recognition event.
Residents Kenneth Minter and Shirley Dixon enjoy the luncheon.
Chaplain Diane Gunsolley and Life Enrichment Director Sandy Barnes coordinated this special luncheon.
"Aberdeen Village and its residents hold a special place in my heart. It is always good to see residents that moved in when I worked there in the early 2000s: Bill Walters and Ginny Graham to name a couple, as well as members of Grace Covenant Presbyterian," said volunteer Terri Monrad, who helps host a hymn sing every month.

"And, singing and sharing the hymns of my grandmother makes me incredibly happy,” Terry continued. “The residents choose the hymns and I enjoy the smiles when a favorite hymn is sung – even those who don’t voice the lyrics mouth the words ingrained in their hearts. It uplifts my spirits to sing with them and allows me to share my God-given gifts. I responded to a request from Diane Gunsolley, chaplain, last year to help with the hymn sing and plan to continue."
