Munson named Wolf award recipient

WEYBRIDGE — Alice Munson of Weybridge has been chosen as the recipient of the Virginia B. Wolf Service Award. The award was established in honor of Virginia Wolf for her longtime service to the community. Wolf was one of the first RSVP members in Addison County and served for over 45 years.

Munson’s thoughtful, compassionate nature and her deep commitment to helping others are an inspiration to all who know her. Munson became an RSVP member in 2001. Since that time, she has provided thousands of hours of service to local nonprofits. She has coordinated mailings for many organizations, helping them to share their mission and to achieve their fundraising goals. These include the Addison County Parent Child Center, the Middlebury Studio School, the Middlebury Area Land Trust, Homeward Bound, Elderly Services/Project Independence, the United Way of Addison County, Hospice Volunteer Services, WomenSafe and the Vermont Folklife Center.

Munson has served as a 4-H judge and volunteer for the Addison County Fair and Field Days, chaperoned the ACSD Spring into the Arts events, and assisted with the Days of Caring events. She has provided handmade items for many organizations including Addison County Home Health & Hospice and the American Cancer Society. Munson led Bone Builders, an osteoporosis prevention class for seniors for 18 years, and has served on the RSVP Advisory Council Board for 12 years.

She has been a recruiter, trainer and organizer of volunteers for the American Red Cross Blood Drives for the past 15 years. This year she volunteered on the front lines for the Red Cross Blood Drives and provided hundreds of hand-sewn masks to healthcare organizations and schools. In addition, Munson has volunteered in many capacities to support her church community. She has assisted as a Sunday school teacher and with annual events, served as a Deacon and a longtime member of the Pastoral Care Board.

Munson received the Governor’s Community Service Award in 2007. In addition to receiving the Virginia B. Wolf Service Award, she will receive an award for her 20 years of service as an RSVP member.
