She has volunteered her time as a valet parking attendant, in medical records, in dietary and in the x-ray department. "The Governor's Award is the tops of all awards. To have the Governor recognize you for doing what you love to do is very spe- cial. It makes you feel really im- portant," said DeVries. Volunteer Staffing Coordinator at Beebe Medical Center, Edna Woodhall, says DeVries and all of the hospital volunteers are worthy of the recognition. "Whenever I have a special pro- ject that comes up, Mary always finds the time in her busy sched- ule to help. She is such an un- selfish person and loves helping others. The hospital could not get along without our volunteers," said Woodhall. Aside from the time given to the Funtastic Clowns and Beebe, De Vries is also a volunteer with READ-ALOUD Delaware, Head Start, Very Special Arts, Beach Clean Up Program, the Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary, the Cape Henlopen Senior Center, the Zwaanendael Club, the Lioness Club, the American Red Cross, CHEER, the Telephone Pioneers, Harbor Health Care, Lewes Con- valescent Center, Huling Cove, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary, Adopt-a-Highway and the St. Jude's and St. Edmond's congregation.

Nearly 500 people serve as CHEER volunteers, delivering meals, transporting seniors to medical appointments, perform with CHEER-a-PET, dress as clowns and operate a friend pro- gram 11 senior centers throughout Sussex County. "I'm so pleased that our volun- teers have been chosen and recog- nized for their hard work. With- out the generous donation of their time, many of the services we pro- vide would be either drastically reduced or stopped completely. Gov. Carper's support of CHEER's volunteers and the at- tention he gives us makes it that much easier to get our message out. We are very grateful to the Governor for that," said Arlene Littleton, executive director of CHEER.
