Hannibal Regional Auxiliary members gathered earlier this week to honor their own at the annual Service Awards luncheon.

Among the recognitions was the Volunteer of the Year, which went to Kim Ahrens of Hannibal.

Along with her volunteer hours at the reception desk and Judy’s Boutique, Kim has been a member of the Auxiliary’s Board of Directors for the past four years.

And, incidentally, her son is Todd Ahrens, the President and CEO of Hannibal Regional.

Other awards went to Shirley Jackson as Outstanding New Member and Nancy Cruse, who received the President’s Call to Service Award.

The Hannibal Regional Auxiliary has been in existence since 1993, helping patients, families and visitors in a variety of ways as well as contributing to the community.
