Civic and Community Volunteer of the Year - Lyn Gilman-Garrick, Pro-Bone-O.
Lyn is a founding member of Pro-Bone-O, the nonprofit that provides free veterinary care, food and supplies to pets of homeless people. She has served on the board for more than 10 years before retiring last year, after serving in capacities including secretary/treasurer, historian, office manager, chief budget officer and legal expert.
Volunteer Hours: 20 or more many weeks; thousands during 10 years on board.
"I am convinced that without Lyn's perserverance, Pro-Bone-O would have disbanded at some point...but it hasn't and because of that, our entire community has benefited by having healthier animals providing unconditional love and comfort to their human companions." - Vicki Bockes, Pro-Bone-O
