Dianne Monroe has been named the Snellville Senior Center Volunteer of the Year for 2018. When a request that the Senior Center is in need of more candy for its front desk, Moore is usually quick to donate some.

She often picks up and drops off several of the Senior Center’s members who no longer are able to drive back and forth to the facility. Monroe regularly helps with getting the bi-monthly newsletters prepared to be mailed out. In addition, she's a familiar face at the monthly Bingo program and is always available to help with whatever needs to be done. Monroe is also a member of the Keenager Club and continues to be a great benefit to the group.

A native Atlantan, who graduated from Grady High School, Monroe was married for 32 years to a U.S. Army private who was stationed at Fort Benning. They had two boys and one girl. That led her to become a Cub Scout leader, den mother and Brownie leader as well. Monroe is now a proud grandmother of six and a great-grandmother of four. Her favorite activity is bowling and she enjoys visiting friends.

“We could go on and on with all the ways Dianne has freely given of her time to volunteer at the center as well as for our community,” said Parks and Recreation Director Lisa Platt. “We truly appreciate all her efforts in helping us offer successful programs for our citizens. So it is with great pleasure and sincere appreciation that on behalf of the City of Snellville and the entire Parks and Recreation Department, that we present this award to Ms. Dianne Monroe.”
