Thursday evening, the Genesis Healthcare Foundation honored its donors and a special community member for their services to the hospital and the local area.

Becky Archibald was the 14th Annual Genesis Community Service Award recipient. Genesis employees say that Archibald embodies the perfect balance of service and leadership in the community.

"Well Becky was Director of Volunteers at Bethesda, and beyond that she spent many years volunteering for different organizations throughout the community through her church and other civic organizations, " said Genesis Healthcare Foundation, Executive Director, Paul McClelland.

Speakers told various stories regarding Archibald’s dedication to hard work and also recognized other individuals who have contributed to Genesis.

" I think it lets people know that there are some great folks out there and often they are the unsung heroes of our community,people that go about service each and everyday not expecting anything from it," said McClelland.

The night ended with a lovely dinner provided by the hospital’s food service staff.
