According to C.E.F.S. Chief Executive Officer Paul White, “The agency recognized outstanding acts of volunteerism and active civic involvement to help transform lives and to build stronger communities.”

For giving the gift of valuable time to help others, C.E.F.S. recognized Kathy Lantz, Diane Wagner, and Doris Fair, all of Shelbyville, as 2013 Outstanding Volunteers.

C.E.F.S.
