What great ideas! I love the bulletin board idea. What an easy way to recognize volunteers.

It amazes me how many organizations forget to provide recognition! A critical thing to do well and do often.

thanks for these terrific reminders! Nothing, nothing, nothing like a hand written note, don't you think?

Don't forget to ask for freebies from local restaurants like Chick Fil A and McDonald's. They often have business size cards good for treats like a free milkshake or a free burger. They're small but still appreciated and FREE for you.

Yes, Bunnie - I'm a hand-written fan... for birthday cards and thank you notes - it's so special b/c it's so rarely done.

Great suggestion, Gail! Maybe local salons and movies too?

Appreciate all the comments!! Jess

Food is one of my favorite ways to say "thanks". I always encourage committee chairs to bring treats - nothing says I appreciate your efforts like a treat. I can imagine the faces of dedicated volunteers when they see an entire box of treats just for them!
