The Celebration Issue! We are kicking off the beginning of our 15th Year of Service to the community later this month with Beer Tasting & BBQ at Manor Hill Brewing (Please join us!). We also celebrate two of our fantastic volunteer drivers:
Clinton Edwards was inducted into the Maryland Senior Citizens Hall of Fame.
Leo St. Cyr provided his 1,000th ride with Neighbor Ride.
Please see all of the exciting details below.
Milestones! Leo St. Cyr hits 1000th Ride!
Congratulations to Leo St. Cyr, who provided his 1,000th ride on October 31. Leo has volunteered with Neighbor Ride since 2010. He has driven a remarkable 40,000 miles in service to his neighbors, taking 502 different clients to various appointments and outings. Lucky for us this ride was to the Howard County Department of Community Resources and Services' and their staff arranged for a photographer to be present.
Driver Clinton Edwards is Inducted into the Senior Hall of Fame
We are so excited that our Neighbor Ride driver, Clinton Edwards, was inducted into the Maryland Senior Citizens Hall of Fame. This award is given to active volunteers who since the age of 65 have made an outstanding contribution to improve the lives of others in Maryland. Clinton was the only nominee from Howard County. He is pictured here with his family. Congratulations Clinton!
"Neighbor Ride is an awesome program. I always enjoy my interaction with the volunteers. You are reducing social isolation!"
"I am a kidney transplant patient and every appt is a necessity and I appreciate every ride I receive. Love you."
"Although I gave Sally the wrong address, she got me to Wilmer on time. Very nice lady."
