Mediation center thanks volunteers

June 07, 2009

The Washington County Community Mediation Center held a Day on the Farm Volunteer Appreciation event May 9 to thank the volunteer mediators and their families for their more than 3,900 hours of volunteer mediation services donated in the past year.

The event was held on the 80-acre Peaceable Paws and Pastures campus owned by Pat and Paul Miller in Fairplay.

During a brief awards ceremony, Valerie Main, mediation center director, spoke of how eight years ago a small group of people had a dream of starting a community mediation center with the vision of helping others work through their conflicts.

After Main spoke, each volunteer received a Certificate of Appreciation, a Washington County Community Mediation Center T-shirt and a "You Make A Difference" pen, in acknowledgement of their tireless efforts volunteering for the mediation center.

Mediation services are provided at no cost to Washington County residents. If you need help resolving a conflict with coworkers, employers, employees, neighbors, friends, family, or other loved ones, or are interested in being a volunteer mediator, go to www.wccmc.org/home or contact the office at 301-665-9262.
