The Provincial Volunteer Awards for our region are happening this evening at The Concordia Club in Kitchener.
I don't have to attend.
I wouldn't even know about this event except that my volunteer coordinator at the retirement home told me she was attending with a group of her long serving volunteers. I told her what a fabulous job she was doing and that I hoped she would have a great time watching 200 and more regional volunteers receive recognition.
Then I skipped out to the car.
I don't have to attend.......at least not until I am a 5, 10 or 20-year retirement home volunteer.
