Longtime volunteer retires

STERLING – When Nancy Bushong began volunteering for the CGH Auxiliary Sept. 14, 1993, her initial goal was 1,000 hours a year. Through August 2012, her total volunteer hours were 17, 887.

“I just like it all here,” Bushong, said. “If I can help just one person, that is my pay.”

Bushong worked pouring cement for 37 years before volunteering at CGH. She said a woman from her church suggested she get involved. So she signed up for the CGH Auxiliary.

Four months later, the volunteer chairman quit. Bushong volunteered to fill in until a new chairman was found. She still is waiting for them to fill the position.

“Nancy has been a dedicated and valuable volunteer for many years,” Ed Andersen, CGH president and CEO, said.

Bushong is retiring due to health reasons. Her chairman volunteer schedule for October is already made out. “I’ve enjoyed the years I’ve put in here,” Bushong said. “I wonder where they went.  I know I’m gonna miss it.”
