On April 9 at the Com­mu­nity Re­cre­ation Cen­tre in New Per­li­can, the sec­ond an­nual Plat­ters and Plates for Parkin­son’s break­fast event was held.

Or­ga­nizer Don Martin is over­whelmed with the amount of sup­port he has re­ceived from the vol­un­teers at the cen­tre, the peo­ple in New Per­li­can, and sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties.

“I am truly grate­ful for the all the hard work and en­ergy shown by ev­ery­one in­volved,” says Martin. “ We raised al­most $3,000 which is a sig­nif­i­cant amount for a small char­ity like Parkin­son So­ci­ety NL.”

At the event, long-time vol­un­teer June Hunt from Har­bour Grace was hon­oured by the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion Parkin­son Sup­port Group as “ Vol­un­teer of the Year 2011” for her ded­i­ca­tion to peo­ple with Parkin­son’s.

Also, New Per­li­can Mayor Linda Moyles signed a procla­ma­tion let­ting all cit­i­zens of New Per­li­can know that April is des­ig­nated a Parkin­son’s Aware­ness Month.
