Full hall for CAB Volunteer Luncheon
TheCAB RH Rediker honored their volunteers, last Friday, with their annual Volunteer Luncheon. With well over one hundred volunteers, the Stanstead volunteer center’s basement hall was full but the line-ups for the delicious meal, prepared by the center’s cooks, were friendly. Dignitaries from all levels of government attended, including Orford MNA Pierre Reid, several local mayors and councilors, and a representative for Compton/Stanstead MP Marie-Claude Bibeau.
The CAB RH Rediker’s volunteers help provide services of Meals-on-Wheels, accompanied transport for errands and appointments, income tax help and more, and all of this to residents of Stanstead as well as several neighboring communities. They also run the center’s second-hand store on Dufferin Street.
