Volunteer Appreciation 2017

 

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017 marked the 7th Volunteer Appreciation Tea held at Waterside Retirement Lodge.  What started as a group of 4 volunteers in 2010, grew into a table of 12 in 2013, now in 2017 over 80 volunteers were invited with 52 in attendance.

20 Resident Volunteers, 3 Family Volunteers, 1 Kinette Volunteer, 19 Community Volunteers and rounding the event out 9 Collingwood Marine General Hospital Volunteers.  A great afternoon was had by all, with entertainment provided by The Piano Man.
Christie Murchison, Recreation Coordinator gave a moving speech sharing that the volunteers are the root of the Lodge. With tears in her eyes she shared that everyone here is family and she always thought as herself as a one man band (as she is the only person in her department), but she is very much aware that she is not a one man band, but a team of 65, because without all of the wonderful volunteers, she would not be able to do what she does in a day for the Residents of Waterside Retirement Lodge.  
The event was held to say thank you to all volunteers for making an outstanding difference in the lives of the Residents.   The day could not have been pulled off without the assistance of many volunteers, even though it was their special day.  Our volunteers love to help and graciously got up from their seats to assist and serve other Volunteers their cheesecake and tea.  After the event our volunteers went home with their hand painted, potted seeds that the Residents planted with love as a thank you for what the volunteers do here at Waterside.
