Wellington County Honours Six People One Group For Volunteering 2009: David Meyer

Wellington County honours six people one group for volunteering

by David Meyer GUELPH – County councillors took a break from their regular deliberations on April 30 to honour volunteers from across Wellington.
Councillor Lou Maieron, the liaison for the county with the Volunteer Centre of Guelph-Wellington, told councillors his duties were not onerous. The mayors of the seven municipalities introduced the winners, and Warden Joanne Ross-Zuj noted she was pre&shysenting the Centre Wellington Township award to Carol Kirby. Since 2000, Kirby has vol&shyunteered with the Groves Hospital Volunteer Association where she contributes more than 50 hours a month in the Fergus Opportunity Shop and hospital gift shop, both as&shysist&shying and managing these operations. As a board member, she has held the positions of treasurer, director of com&shymunications and currently, director of fundraising. Thanks to Carol’s hard work, and that of other GHVA volunteers, the hospital has been able to raise $500,000 of $3-million required for the purchase of a CAT Scan.
Ross-Zuj lauded Kirby for “countless numbers of hours” of volunteering in the community.
