NORWICH The Hospice staff ranks have grown recently by nine volunteers. While they are not paid for their service to patients, they are without exception special people who wish to give back to their communities. Folks from South Otselic to Greene to New Berlin prepared for their role by taking classes in April and May. Hospice Volunteer Coordinator Judie Wright was pleased that four of the new volunteers are men. We have a lot of male patients and in order to make the best match between patient and volunteer, we needed more men willing to face the topic of death and dying, and devote themselves to helping out whenever and wherever they can.
