A volunteer recognition gathering was held on April 16, 2015 in Fredericton, NB. Carol Tracey, Director of Development, acknowledged and thanked each volunteer for his/her valued contribution.
She expressed a special thank you to each Portage Atlantic Board member, Lions and Portage Atlantic youth volunteers and members of the Amana Institute for their valued contributions to the Portage organization and to the Portage Centre at Cassidy Lake.
Dr. Russell King, chairman of the Portage Atlantic Board of Directors, acknowledged the continued support of the volunteers to the Portage mission and services. The guest speaker, Miss Katie Davey, UNB Student Union President for 2015-2016, spoke to this year’s national recognition theme – a volunteer action is like a stone thrown in a lake: its effect has a direct impact. At the same time, like ripples, volunteer efforts reach out far and wide to improve communities.
