Society Recognizes Ladouceur with Harry E. King Award

The Society of the United Helpers recently honored Wayne N. Ladouceur with the Harry E. King Award at the 119th annual meeting of the Board of Directors.
Mr. Ladouceur, member of the Society of the United Helpers and dedicated volunteer, was recognized for his unparalleled commitment to residents at RiverLedge Health Care and Rehabilitation Center and all those served by the United Helpers organization.
“The Harry E. King Award is to be presented only rarely, in the case of a desire to recognize a volunteer of United Helpers who is virtually unrivaled and exceptional in his or her commitment,” noted Dr. Edward I. Gordon, Vice President of the Society Board of Directors. “Wayne Ladouceur is such an individual.”
Noteworthy for his thousands of volunteer hours, Mr. Ladouceur was lauded for his nearly 30 years of service to United Helpers, from his tireless fundraising efforts, to his personal attention and time spent with residents at RiverLedge and the RiverLedge adult residence.
“Giving of one’s time is one of the purest gifts that anyone can give,” Gordon added. “Although Wayne insists that he receives more from volunteering than he gives, there can be simply no doubt that his impact and benefit to the Society and those we serve is immeasurable.”

Mr. Ladouceur is the first recipient of the King Award, an award named in honor of Harry E. King, a 35-year volunteer for the Society of the United Helpers and member of the Board of Directors. Mr. King was well known for his quiet and humble commitment to service. His own volunteer legacy spanned from the 1980s through 2010. Mr. King volunteered at United Helpers Cedars, United Helpers Nursing Home (RiverLedge), and the United Helpers Canton Nursing Home (Maplewood) and he served on several of United Helpers’ Boards of Directors. He held a special affinity for United Helpers Maplewood Health Care and Rehabilitation Center in Canton, later residing at Maplewood until his passing in 2010.

King and member of United Helpers Management Company Board of Directors; Cheryl A. Ladouceur, Society member; Wayne N. Ladouceur; and Dr. Edward I.
