BOONSBORO — Florence Graff, a volunteer and former board member at Fahrney-Keedy Home and Village in Boonsboro, was honored Nov. 4 as a distinguished volunteer during the National Philanthropy Day luncheon at Ceresville Mansion in Frederick, Md.

At the event, the Western Maryland Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals lauded area volunteers for their work in the community.

Graff, of Hagerstown, served on the Fahrney-Keedy board of directors from 1994 to 2007, and was nominated as someone who has supported and volunteered her time to make Fahrney-Keedy a better place for its residents. She received a medallion and certificate at the luncheon.

"Fahrney-Keedy is blessed to have been the recipient of Dr. (Henry) and Mrs. Graff's generosity both through endowments and volunteer efforts over many years," said Keith Bryan, president and chief executive officer of Fahrney-Keedy Home and Village. "She is tireless in her dedication and hard work, and we wish to express our deep thanks on behalf of the facility and its residents for her service to the board."

Bryan also described her as "devoted" in the volunteer booklet with the following: "Mrs. Henry F. Graff's energetic devotion and service to Fahrney-Keedy is evident in many ways. She has set the example of philanthropy with her own actions of support and by challenging her fellow board members. We are blessed to have been recipient of her generosity through an endowment. After her many years of service on the board of directors, she continued her involvement through volunteering."

A continuing-care retirement community, Fahrney-Keedy is on Md. 66 a few miles west of Boonsboro.
