Richard Scott, Director of Community Relations, hosted the awards presentation in a crowded room that was full of the recipients’ family members, as well as appreciative City employees. As he opened the ceremony, Scott said it was an honor to highlight the accomplishments of such outstanding volunteers.
Hunt began volunteering through the Volunteer Pasadena program more than nine years ago. In that time, she has helped with many special events and has assisted departments throughout the City; in total, she has helped in more than 35 different departments and special events.
Volunteer Pasadena manager Linda Morgan thanked Hunt, calling her assistance essential. “Kelly is always friendly and is such a joy to work with,” Morgan said. “We absolutely couldn’t do without her.”
Morgan next expressed her gratitude for the other recipient of the award, Dennis Moeller. She described him as one of the most valuable members of the ongoing Walk the Water program.
“He adopted part of a bayou behind his subdivision and has walked that waterway and reported on it every day for the past three years,” Morgan said. “He is such a dependable and dedicated volunteer, and I can’t thank him enough for his help.”
On behalf of Mayor Johnny Isbell and members of City Council, Scott presented the two volunteers with a plaque of appreciation and congratulated them on this much-deserved recognition.
“Thank you for your selfless dedication,” Scott said. He continued, expressing gratitude for all of the volunteers in the City who, through the Volunteer Pasadena program, contributed thousands of service hours to the City each year. “We have hundreds and hundreds of volunteers in this great city, and we thank each and every one of you for all of your help.”
