(VIDEO) Frost Manor honours volunteers with luncheon

Frost Manor hosted a luncheon April 27 in honour of the many people who volunteer their time to enrich the lives of residents at the Lindsay long-term care home.

Volunteers were treated to lunch that was prepared by the nutritional care department. Staff members worked as waiters and waitresses to serve them.

For this year’s luncheon, the team prepared shaved prime rib and Swiss cheese sandwiches with a goat cheese and chive sauce. Sandwiches were served with a side of roasted corn salad infused with basmati rice, bacon, shallots and cilantro.

Life enrichment co-ordinator Vi O’Leary delivered a thank-you speech to everyone.

“You are of great value to Frost Manor, and we’re very lucky to have you,” Vi told the volunteers. “We are very grateful for your commitment. Our volunteers share their time and talents without any compensation, and your gift of time is priceless.”

April 23-29 was National Volunteer Week 2017. The week was marked by events nationwide that celebrate volunteers and all they do to enrich the lives of others. This year marks the 76th National Volunteer Week.
