awards presentation

The American Red Cross got a chance to honor the extraordinary contributions of Pat Powers last week. For those who didn’t know her, Pat was an incredibly dedicated volunteer who received the 2007 Harriman Award, the Red Cross’ highest national volunteer recognition. She served the Delaware County Chapter since 1955 including as its Board Chair, later serving as the Region’s first Chair of the combined Blood/Chapter Board and then became a member of the National Board of Governors. Last weekend, her family gathered from all over the world to place a plaque on the Pat Powers Honor Wall at the Delaware Chapter. Pat passed away in April of this year, but her legacy continues in the form of the Pat Powers Award established in 2005 to recognize outstanding volunteerism and dedication, which is evidenced by her large collection of awards and pins on the Memorial Wall.
