Wellington Terrace recognizes long serving volunteers

by Mike Robinson

ABOYNE - Numerous area residents were recognized for their contributions to the Wellington Terrace community on May 11.

Following a volunteer seminar, many of those taking part were also recognized for their volunteerism over the years.

Mary Black coordinates the efforts of about 120 volunteers.

Black said “without our volunteer team we would not be able to provide such excellent care and support for our residents.”

She noted it was 11 years ago that staff and residents moved into the current Wellington Terrace building.

Black noted some of those in the audience volunteered at the old home, while others assisted in the move from one location to the other.

“It’s been wonderful to share the memories of both the old and the new buildings,” she said.

In presenting the certificates Black said that if they were to ask volunteers to provide one hour each week, that would equate to 52 hours each year.

Using that, Black used the actual volunteer hours to mark an estimated number of years of service for each of the volunteers.
