The Capital Region Food Program named Honora “Honey” Reardon and Katherine “Kay” Reardon, both of Concord, as its 2012 Volunteer Hero Award winners at the 39th annual Blessing of the Baskets ceremony Dec. 18 at the National Guard Armory.
Board Chairman Steven Painchaud presented the award to the Reardon sisters as Gov. John Lynch and Mayor Jim Bouley looked on. The Volunteer Hero Award was established in 2008 and recognizes individuals who have provided extraordinary service to the organization over a long period of time, who strongly believe in the mission of the Capital Region Food Program and who have demonstrated the ability to secure support for the program from the community.
The Reardon sisters have supported the Holiday Food Basket Project for over 20 years and have been regular volunteers for the annual golf tournament. They are a constant source of support to the Capital Region Food Program and wonderful ambassadors in community. In addition, Honey and Kay have involved their family in the program for over 15 years. The fourth generation of Reardons will be volunteering this holiday season.
