On Thursday, April 14, a Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon was hosted at the Boreen Hall by the Town of Esterhazy, and Sunrise Health Region.
Master of ceremonies was Linda Abdai, and guest speakers were Christina Denyek, VP of Strategy and Partnerships at Sunrise Health, and EsterhazyOnline’s own Kenneth J. Kerr.
Christina thanked the volunteers for their significant contribution to the area, positing also what a town would look like if there were no volunteers at hospitals, care homes, schools, etc. Kenneth spoke of the way in which volunteerism ties in with the deeper meaning of life, that we are actually living for the purpose of giving.
There were approximately 100 people in attendance, representing numerous avenues of volunteerism and service across the Esterhazy district. The event included door prizes, and also musical entertainment by Rachel Dancsok.
