HERKIMER, N.Y. – The Arc Herkimer has awarded two volunteers for their dedication and commitment to the agency.

During the annual volunteer ‘thank you’ event, Dominic Frank and Angie Cook were honored with Volunteer of the Year awards.

“Our volunteers are the glue that holds our agency together. These people truly care about the work that they do for our mission and we couldn’t be more grateful,” said Jackie Lewis, volunteer coordinator.

Frank and his wife began volunteering at the Arc Herkimer after retiring, and have been contributing their time to the agency for many years. He assists with events and serves on the committee for the organization’s largest fundraiser, the New York International Wine Auction.

Cook currently works as a family educator in the Valley Commons Family Program provided through the agency. She also volunteers at the Arc Park in the village, and organized the summer concert series at the park, among other events.

Anyone interested in volunteering at Arc Herkimer should contact Jackie Lewis at 315-574-7525.
