Margaret Detert Honored for 50 years of Continuous Volunteer Service - November 1, 2013

Merrillville, IN – Margaret Detert was honored for achieving 50 years of continuous volunteer service at Methodist Hospitals’ Annual Auxiliary Awards Luncheon.

This year was exceptionally special because of Margaret’s achievement. Margaret Detert is on her 50th year of consecutive volunteer service with Methodist Hospitals. Detert is a proud member of the Methodist Hospitals Auxiliary as well as a dedicated and exceptional volunteer. Detert serves as a chairwoman for the volunteers as well being the Corresponding Secretary for the Auxiliary. Detert received a beautiful bouquet of flowers, and a gold plated pin to represent her volunteer service hours. All Methodist Hospitals Volunteers were also honored for serving a total of 34,394 service hours for the 2012-2013 year.

Detert grew up in Missouri then moved to Northwest Indiana with her husband Robert Detert. As a stay at home mother Detert decided to spend some of her time volunteering at the hospital with her fellow sorority sisters. Everyone truly appreciates all of the devotion Detert has given to the Auxiliary and Volunteer Services at Methodist Hospitals.

The luncheon was held on Thursday, September 19, 2013, at Innsbrook Country Club in Merrillville, Indiana. Volunteers wear their pink and red jackets proudly.
