Many of the wonderful volunteers who give 2 hours a week to tutor children were celebrated tonight by the St. Henry de Osso Family Project, at a dinner at First State Bank in Uvalde. Staff members prepared and served a brisket dinner for them, and presented gifts (garden decorations in beautiful homemade bags) as a token of appreciation for the volunteers' sacrifice of time and service. Sr. Clarice Suchy, stj graciously provided music to complete the atmosphere.

Volunteers were encouraged to share some of their stories, and many told how their tutoring experience had touched their own hearts. Some former volunteers were able to be present, as well as some family members, who themselves had also sacrificed much for the sake of the tutoring.  After a game of discovering the hidden treasures in purses and wallets, certificates were presented to all the volunteers.  It was a great evening of sharing and appreciating the gift given by those who have discovered the joy of giving of themselves for the sake of God's littlest ones.
