If us­ing our names helps the cause, we will do it

Tillsonburg News - - OPIN­ION -

I can tell you that all four of us were very hon­oured and although it sounds cliché, hum­bled to be cho­sen. If you think we do what we do for the awards, you know noth­ing of us, or any other vol­un­teer. We do it be­cause it needs do­ing and we have a pas­sion to make sure oth­ers can take ad­van­tage of, or per­haps be in­spired, to join the sport, the Kins­men Club, Lake Lis­gar re­vi­tal­iza­tion, The Car­roll Trail.

I know Bill pratt didn’t like hav­ing his name in so many ar­ti­cles about the Can­cer ride N Stride, but af­ter 60 years vol­un­teer­ing for can­cer fundrais­ers, if us­ing his name will get free ad­ver­tis­ing and pub­lic­ity and gain more for the cause, he and we, will do it and suf­fer the teas­ing and com­ments we get.

But as a friend said, per­haps the Awards Com­mit­tee could hon­our more younger vol­un­teers, like evan, to in­spire more their age to help.
