On Tuesday, July 14, 2020, the Athens Rotary Club and The Athens Sunrise Rotary Club held an appreciation event at the Athens County Health Department.  We masked up and placed signs at the building entrance and around the parking lot to thank the staff for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic.  A table was set up in the parking lot, filled with outdoor perennial plants to be distributed to each of the staff.   The date of the event was very appropriate, as the nurses had worked overtime the previous 2 weekends tracking cases after the numbers recently spiked in Athens County.  Thanks to Diane McVey, Mike Noel, Ed Peterson, and Sheila Mark from the Athens Rotary Club as well as Kelly Pero from the Sunrise Club for staffing the event.  It was rewarding to hear the expressions of gratitude from the staff.
