Volunteers feted in Stanstead
The CAB RH Rediker held its annual Volunteer Brunch last Friday, celebrating their over 150 volunteers. “Last year, our volunteers allowed us to deliver over 10,600 meals-on-wheels, to provide transport and accompaniment over 900 times for out-oftown appointments, to run the family counter, the income tax clinic, the blood pressure clinic and much more,” said the director of the CAB, Mylene LaBonté.
During the event, the over fifty volunteers who attended were treated to two presentations. Justin Dewey, of Stanstead Ambulance, spoke about the upcoming Hero in 30 training on April 26th and why it is important for people to get that training. Arianne Chabot, of Viactive, spoke about that exercise program, for seniors, which is animated by volunteers.
The CAB RH Rediker is in need of more volunteers. People are welcome to volunteer just a few hours a year, a month or a week; it is very flexible. For information call 819 876-7748.
Special guests at the brunch were (l. to r.) Stanstead councillor Rollande Rouleau, Ogden mayor Michael Sudlow, NDP MP Jean Rousseau,
Liberal MNA Pierre Reid and CAB president Pierrette Gosselin.
