LEWISTON — Sheila Sylvester of Lewiston and Kathleen Delehanty of Auburn were recently honored with the 2021 Margaret Ross Award for their nine years of volunteerism in the Education Center at SeniorsPlus.

The award, presented annually, recognizes that the two women have made significant contributions to the agency and the larger community.

The two form a cohesive volunteer team, according to SeniorsPlus. Sylvester tackles the paperwork, while Delehanty completes data input. When the pandemic hit, the two became the first Friendly Caller Program volunteers, connecting with clients to help decrease social isolation.

“Kathleen and Sheila are two of our most loyal volunteers,” said Betsy Sawyer-Manter, president and CEO of SeniorsPlus. “We are so grateful for their many years of support and are happy to be able to recognize them,” according to a news release from the agency.

SeniorsPlus is the designated Area Agency on Aging serving Androscoggin, Franklin, and Oxford counties.
