Dinner a way to say thanks to volunteers

The Greenwood Museum & Greenwood Community Club combine their annual volunteer appreciation dinner each year with a tree and gift exchange.

A potluck Christmas dinner was combined with a celebration of those who give time to the Greenwood Museum and the Community Association on Sunday evening at McArthur Centre.

Councillor Colleen Lang, who also sits as a director with the Community Association, thanked all of the volunteers that keep the hall and the Friday night bingo going—from the shoppers who keep supplies in stock to the bingo callers, floorwalkers and kitchen staff.

Lang expressed the feelings of many in attendance when she said they really felt the loss of Marj Maclean, who had served both groups for many years.

Doreen MacLean, director of the museum, thanked the volunteers at the museum and Info Centre. Many do the day-to-day chores: the visitor counselors, groundskeepers, brochure racking, secretary and treasurer. She also thanked several other members for their contributions to the museum such as attending a workshop, sitting on the economic development committee, conducting the meetings or helping secure a new photocopier.

Following a great dinner, gifts were exchanged and carols were sung.
