BOONSBORO — Joyce Stevenson, president of the Fahrney-Keedy Home & Village Auxiliary in Boonsboro, was honored Nov. 9 as a distinguished volunteer during the National Philanthropy Day luncheon at Hollow Creek Restaurant in Middletown, Md.

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