Apalachicola resident Gladys Gatlin recognized for volunteer work

March 8, 2016 Apalachicola City Commission Meeting
Gladys Gatlin, a life-long resident of Apalachicola was recognized at the Apalachicola Board of City Commissioners March 8, meeting for her work as a volunteer at the Holy Family Senior Citizen Center.

Gatlin had missed the awards ceremony hosted by the Area Agency on Aging for North Florida held during the latter part of 2015, where the award was to be presented.

Harriet Beach, of Lanark Village accepted the award on Gatlin’s behalf and asked the City Commission to make a public presentation of the award to Gatlin. The city commission was honored to accommodate the request.

Since the Senior Center went on line in 2012, Gatlin has unselfishly volunteered her time working with the seniors and watching over the facility. She’s to be commended for her personal sacrifice, for her actions, not her words in making Apalachicola a better place to live for all its citizens.

Thank you Ms. Gladys!
