Christine Caz Recognized for Volunteer Efforts in Eagle River
The Auxiliary-Partners of Ministry Eagle River Memorial Hospital recently recognized Christine Caz with the first Health Care Hero award for her volunteer service in the Eagle River community. The annual award is given to a person who exemplifies strong leadership and service to the community. She is the Community Services Coordinator for Ministry Howard Young Health Care.
In addition to her duties with Ministry Health Care, Christine is a member of the Walter E. Olson Memorial Library Foundation, Rotary Club of Eagle River as a Paul Harris Fellow, Vilas County Highway Safety Committee and she’s the President of the Eagle River Chamber of Commerce. She is also the Coordinator for the Cranberry Fitness Events during Cranberry Fest which benefits the hospital’s Physical Therapy Department. Christine has been active in Journeys Marathon and Kid’s and Guide’s Day and was named Woman of the Year by the Chamber in 2010.
“Through her leadership, dedication and focus on volunteering in the community, Christine Caz has been a part of dozens of community service projects over the years,” said Peggie Lambert, President of the Auxiliary. “She has made a tremendous difference in the lives of others, and that was a big reason she was selected as the first recipient of the prestigious Health Care Hero award.”
“I’m extremely honored and humbled to receive this award,” added Caz. “I’ve always felt it’s important to be an active part of the hospital and the community, and I look forward to many years of continued service.”
