Dwight Eisenhower was the newly elected president when Christine Adams first began volunteering at St. Lawrence Hospital in 1953.
Adams, a Lansing native, has enriched many lives in the years since with her dedication and positive attitude as she has continued to volunteer at Sparrow. She received special recognition for her 60-plus years of volunteering during the recent Sparrow Women's Hospital Association Annual Meeting.
In 1972, Adams and a few other volunteers began carrying baskets of items to Patients' rooms. That led to organizing the Mary Magdalen League gift shop. Adams is a charter member and past president and continues to work regular shifts at the shop.
She also served on the St. Lawrence Auxiliary Board and was formerly its president.
Thank you, Christine Adams, for all that you've done for Sparrow and its Patients.
