HURLEY — The Retired Senior Volunteer Program of Ashland will hold a recognition banquet for 2013 on Saturday at the Iron County Memorial Building in Hurley.

More than 60 Iron County volunteers will attend the banquet, featuring an Italian dinner. The event begins at 12:30 p.m.

Beth Scoth will make introductions before the meal. Award presentations, fun and games will follow the meal, according to a news release.

Two locals will be honored at the banquet: Pearl Cornetto, of Gile and Apache Junction, Ariz ., the Iron County Food Pantry and Treasure Room’s senior volunteer; and Tyler Vogel, of Montreal, the pantry’s youngest volunteer.

“Both volunteers are faithful in their volunteer hours and are a blessing to the organization,” said Dorothy Walesewicz, a pantry spokesperson.

Vogel, a seventh grader at Hurley K-12 School, has finished two years of volunteering.
