McGee championed for years of services
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.
