REM Award Honorees (2019) — Cliff Manchester (MaineGeneral Medical Center)

Cliff Manchester is representing a proud tradition of volunteerism across MaineGeneral. He is one of the more than 300 volunteers serving throughout the MaineGeneral health care system. Together, they've provided more than 39,000 hours of service, including providing welcome smiles, comfort and assistance to patients, families and staff.

At age 94, Cliff is inspirational! He has been faithfully volunteering for 26 years. He lives in Waterville and not only volunteers at MGMC but also for the Evening Sandwich Program. Cliff retired from Scott Paper and graduated from the University of Maine at Orono, Class of 1950, with a degree in civil engineering. Cliff has the energy of a 50-year-old and can get out of a chair faster than most 30-year-olds. He rarely misses work, but when he does he is up to camp fishing. Cliff always has a smile on his face and a story to tell.

Thank you to Cliff and to all the MaineGeneral volunteers for the important contributions you make to your community!
