Newport, VT—Community National Bank’s (CNB’s) Marketing Assistant Anne Quirion had the honor of presenting Denise Niemira with the bank’s Community Service Award. This award was created to recognize remarkable people who give back to our communities making them better places to live, work and grow.
Since 1994, Dr. Denise Niemira has shown a sincere passion to palliative and hospice care through her work with the Orleans Essex Visiting Nurses Association (VNA) and Hospice. Dr. Niemira recently retired from her successful medical practice and is volunteering her services to the organization. She has provided quality home care to many and has been known to stay with hospice patients when needed most.
Dr. Niemira’s commitment to provide compassionate home health and hospice care has given many individuals and their family members the guidance and resources to care for loved ones at home. The VNA provides our rural communities with vital services that are greatly valued. The dedication to her profession reaches beyond the Northeast Kingdom. Through her missionary work, with other local physicians, she has extended medical care to people in small remote villages in South America.
CNB is proud to present Dr. Niemira with the bank’s Community Service Award for the fourth quarter of 2018. The bank honors and recognizes our recipients by making a $500.00 contribution to a local non-profit organization of the recipient’s choice.
