Things haven’t been the same since Terry McGee stopped vol­un­teer­ing at the Bridge Adult Ser­vice Cen­tre and no one will for­get her any time soon.

Dur­ing her time as part of the team that offers ser­vices for adults with in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­i­ties, McGee’s com­mit­ment war­ranted recog­ni­tion from her col­leagues and peers and spe­cial award cer­e­mony was held in McGee’s hon­our May 10.

“It’s to rec­og­nize she’s been a board mem­ber for over 30 years,” board mem­ber Eve­lyn Brad­ford said. “Terry was al­ways faith­fully at­tend­ing meet­ings, help­ing out with lun­cheons, help­ing the ex­ec­u­tive directors any way she could. She al­ways had a great sense of hu­mour and just a won­der­ful per­son to work with.”

In part with her recog­ni­tion McGee re­ceived a plaque, which a du­pli­cate of will now hang at the adult cen­tre.

“She used to take the kids bowl­ing, and was sec­re­tary for a num­ber of years,” hus­band Jack McGee told the at­tend­ing au­di­ence at Gables Lodge. “I know she would want to thank you very, very much.”

Lo­cated at 16 Sta­tion St. in Amherst, the Bridge Adult Ser­vice Cen­tre op­er­ates a thrift store, laun­dry fa­cil­i­ties and un­der­takes busi­ness con­tracts like small as­sem­bly work, en­ve­lope stuff­ing, sort­ing and pack­ag­ing.
