A huge thank you to all the parent volunteers who give so much of their time to make all aspects of our club run the way it does.

VOLUNTEERS | Open house next week CONTINUED FROM PAGE 16 On one occasion, he visited with a woman from Montreal whose husband was in the hospital. She had so much gratitude for the hospital’s volunteers that Hughes felt all his hours were well worthwhile. “She walked up and down the hall two or three times and would stop and talk to me. She couldn’t get over how friendly the people were here and how all the volunteers were ready to help and would ask her if

she needed anything,â€? said Hughes. Ron Kidd, who is going on his third year volunteering with the hospital, said he feels a sense of community among the volunteers, staff, patients and visitors. “I like the hospital because it’s a community hospital and I work with people who come in from the smaller town and they come in here, they talk about how their towns are doing‌ it’s a community and you can get to know them,â€? said Kidd. He recalls being a visitor

in the hospital and receiving extra care and attention in the family rooms so he makes sure to do the same for others. “Some of the people who come in here, they don’t leave, they die here. They’ve got family rooms here so I like to go down there. I had a cousin that died in here so I think it’s nice that this hospital has those rooms because sometimes you stay 24 hours around.� Though all the volunteers are assigned to a certain job, whether it be at the

coffee shop, welcoming at the front entrance, selling HELPP tickets or in the emergency room, each of them say comforting others brings them the most joy. “It’s so nice to help someone there. It feels so comfortable,� said McPherson. “It gives you a good feeling,� added Kidd. The hospital is hosting an open house this Monday, from 2 to 7 p.m. in celebration of 50 years of volunteering. This will give local residents a chance to meet volunteers and learn more about volunteering at the hospital.

We would not be the success that we are without all of your help.

LENNOX & ADDINGTON COUNTY GENERAL HOSPITAL OUR VOLUNTEERS ARE TURNING 50

Volunteer Services at the Lennox & Addington County General Hospital are celebrating 50 years of service.

The hospital Volunteer Services was established in 1963 to help begin raising funds to build a hospital in our community. Fifty years later it is apparent their vision has been fulfilled well beyond expectations. The community is very proud of the hospital we have built and would like to acknowledge the vital role our volunteers play in the services we provide. The Hospital Board of Directors, Staff and Physicians would like to congratulate the LACGH Volunteer Services on their 50 Year Anniversary and express our appreciation to this group of dedicated individuals for the contributions they make to our hospital and the community. A heartfelt thank you goes out to our treasured volunteers for the work they do and the kindness they bring to us every day. With sincere thanks.
