Kudos go to the volunteer kitchen staff, Gerry Quiring and Jackie Davenport at the Seniors’ Centre at their new location at the firemen’s lounge. They fed eight very, very tired, cold and hungry firemen who had just returned from the horrific accident at Muir Creek on March 31.
We are so proud of the firemen who put their lives on the line everyday and we are very appreciative to them for letting us their beautiful lounge while we are awaiting the building of our new permanent residence.
Gerry and Jackie came to the plate and managed to put together food for these very hungrey fellows. This is just a small thing that seniors do for the community. They can always be called upon to help when needed, As an example of this, when the bridge went down a few years ago, the Seniors’ Centre fed supper to about 40 people who were not able to get home.
We are a non-profit organization helping seniors to help themselves. Please keep supporting us so that we can continue to help others.
