A small group of dedicated volunteers were recognized for their tireless community spirit in front of a bustling table-filled room in Beaver Bank last week. The Woodbine Family Association has been dishing-up hot meals to seniors for more than seven years.
By 11 a.m. the little room in Brown Hall, along Beaver Bank Rd. was almost full with hungry locals enjoying home-cooked liver, onions and bacon, spinach salad and vegetables, followed by dessert, for a meager $5.
“We do a lot for people…Kathy started it about seven-years-ago with a government grant and her whole idea was, there are seniors out there who cannot afford a hot meal,” said Barb Burke, one of the eight volunteers being awarded certificates of recognition by MLA Stephen Gough (Sackville-Beaver Bank).
