Thanks for sup­port

Simcoe Reformer - Times-Reformer - - OPINION -

On be­half of Nor­folk Gen­eral Hospi­tal Vol­un­teer As­so­ci­a­tion, I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to thank the many vol­un­teers, donors and spon­sors of our re­cent Treasure Mart event held Nov. 17 at the Aud in Sim­coe.

We also wish to ac­knowl­edge ev­ery­one who kindly contributed the won­der­ful items sold at this event.

In ad­di­tion to nu­mer­ous vol­un­teers from NGH/NHNH, who help out ev­ery year with the many hours of hard work, we must also make a spe­cial men­tion of the many other par­tic­i­pants with­out whom Treasure Mart could not hap­pen.

Spe­cial thanks go to W.J. Mov­ing, Blue Star Ford, Hertz Rental, and Leon’s Fur­ni­ture for pro­vid­ing us with trans­porta­tion for mov­ing our trea­sures to and from the hospi­tal.

A big thank you to The Kid­ney Foun­da­tion who took the re­main­ing clothes and books. To Doug Sib­bett and his team for load­ing and delivering, the re­main­ing trea­sures to Brant­ford. To Karen Sib­bett, Brian and Jane Miller, who waited for Doug’s re­turn to fin­ish delivering and clos­ing up shop, thanks to you and your team.

To the stu­dents from Holy Trin­ity Catholic High School, Sim­coe Com­pos­ite, and Water­ford: your help and will­ing­ness to take on what­ever we needed you for was awe­some.

For the con­tin­ued sup­port of the hospi­tal through their kind do­na­tions to our event, your local busi­ness com­mu­nity can­not be left off this list -- your con­tri­bu­tions are a tes­ta­ment to your gen­eros­ity and com­mu­nity sup­port.

And last, but not least, to the res­i­dents of Haldimand, Nor­folk and sur­round­ing area who come out year after year to Treasure Mart: we tip our hats to you and thank you most pro­fusely, be­cause re­ally, with­out you there would be no event.

We look for­ward to Treasure Mart 2018 and look for­ward to see­ing you all there. Iris Smith Con­vener
