    To Be a Volunteer:

To be a volunteer, it takes…

Generosity, a willingness to give your time to others

Understanding, because their lives might be very different from your own

Empathy, an ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and feel what they must feel

Compassion, to truly care about making someone else’s life better

Patience, because the process doesn’t always go as smoothly as it might

Dedication, to stick with the project and see it through

You’ve shown these qualities and so much more, so thank you for all that  you do.Our Caring Volunteers: Linda Currie, Cindy Young, John Theiss, Alana Alvis, Marg Laux, Jenn Thom, Rose Anderson, Angela MacDonald, Colleen Davidson, Audrey Hausher, LInda Simpson, Betty Hansen, Vernon Alvis, Wendy Metcalf, Bev Signarowski, Janice Whitelock.
