(ABC 6 News) - A group of volunteers in Mower County got some special recognition Tuesday night.

ARC of Mower County -- which helps people with developmental disabilities -- held its annual volunteer appreciation dinner in Austin as a way to show thanks for all the hard work and dedication put in by volunteers over the past year.

"We wouldn't be here without our volunteers," says Arc Executive Director Dawn Helgeson. "ARC is a grassroots organization and it started with volunteers and it continues in our community anyway for 56 years."

Organizers say they have roughly 100 volunteers in all, but they also say they can always use more help.
