Full hall for CAB Vol­un­teer Lun­cheon

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

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.

A touch of spring green­ery added colour at last Fri­day’s Vol­un­teer Lun­cheon.
