Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon

On Monday, Hospice Muskoka hosted a volunteer appreciation luncheon at the Blue Willow Tea Shop with guest speaker Peter Jennings who spoke about "Why Being Happy Matters." Peter pointed out that most people who volunteer are happy, volunteers like to help others and by doing so they are happy. We received updates about Andy's House from our Board Chair Mary Grady, and news from our Executive Director, Sandra Winspear. Volunteer, Donna Shipway, organized an opportunity for volunteers and staff to share a photo of a time they were happy and why, this collage and the stories were shared with the group. Our Client and Volunteer Coordinator, Michele deKoning, thanked our volunteers for the great job they do serving our clients, helping at events, etc. and that we could not do it without them! A heartfelt thank you to all our volunteers.
