Food and fun for CAB Vol­un­teers

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

About 45 of the CAB RH Rediker’s 150 vol­un­teers at­tended the an­nual Christ­mas lun­cheon for vol­un­teers, last Fri­day. “Vol­un­teers Day is held on De­cem­ber 5th ev­ery year, and we al­ways hold our lun­cheon on the Fri­day of that week. It’s an op­por­tu­nity for us to say ‘Thank you’ to our vol­un­teers and a chance for them to meet each other,” said the CAB’s di­rec­tor, My­lene LaBonté. “We had some of our vol­un­teers not just from Stanstead at the lun­cheon, but from Og­den and Ayer’s Cliff, too,” she added.

Be­sides the great food cooked up by the CAB’s cook­ing staff who get a lot of prac­tise now sup­ply­ing meals

to the ever-grow­ing Meals on Wheels pro­gram five days a week, there was live mu­sic with Lise Flan­ders (who may have been cloned be­cause she seems to be per­form­ing ev­ery­where th­ese days), games and prizes.

The CAB RH Rediker is al­ways in need of vol­un­teers for many dif­fer­ent tasks and ac­tiv­i­ties. Some peo­ple vol­un­teer once a year, once a month, or once a week. The hours are very flex­i­ble so why not give it a try?
