MANITOWOC, Wis. (May 3, 2021) – On Thursday, April 29, Connie Thimmig, Felician Village Director of Enrichment Services, named Judith Wetenkamp as the 2021 recipient of the Felician Award for Excellence in Volunteer Service at Felician Village. The award was presented at the 2021 Volunteer Appreciation Drive-Through event.

Part of Judith's nomination said, "In 2020, The Gardens library underwent a refresh project. In preparation for painting and new carpeting, each book, DVD and other library items needed to be removed. This volunteer guided the project, carefully reorganizing and relabeling each item. Additionally, she assists with Rosary. This volunteer knows firsthand the benefits of the library, and the value of praying and saying the Rosary especially during a turbulent time."

This award recognizes an individual whose volunteer actions have made a significant impact on the residents/operations of Felician Village. The recipient of this award exemplifies the core values of Felician Village by living out the healing ministry of Jesus and providing compassionate care that respects the dignity of each person served.
