The Fundy Wellness Network congratulates all of our champions. Here are just a few stories to share.
Meet Rhonda Cusack. Rhonda is well known in our community contributing her time, passion and energy to numerous events throughout our community covering many aspects of the dimensions of wellness. Whether she is volunteering on a stage, in a booth (Canada Day, Fundy Food Festival) or on a campaign trail raising funds she leaves left her mark on everything she touches. Her most recent endeavour to assist with the KV Oasis Youth Centre to become a reality is just one example of her commitment to her community. She exemplifies what it means to be a Community Leader!
Meet Jayme Hall. Jayme is a true community champion. His "moto" is to help others help themselves and his compassion for people is at the core of his being. He is the Director of the men's shelter - Outflow and collaborates with numerous agencies and stakeholders to improve the health of our community. He helps co-ordinate and serve supper to 700 people a week in our area; has mobilized a group of people to address dental health;helps to co-ordinate programming for people to improve life skills and provides a drop in space for women, just to name a few!
Meet Jan McGill. Jan has been a dedicated volunteer for the Town of Quispamsis. As a volunteer with the Enjoy Life Expo for 50+ that hosted a variety of information booths for the 300+ visitors, she attended committee meetings, circulated promotional materials, and assisted with the operation of the event. The 50+ Friendship Games held in June, also took months of Jan’s time as preparation meetings were held for the event which hosted hundreds of athletes. Certainly, without Jan’s involvement in the community these two events would not have been as successful. Her network connections and wonderful way with people encourages them to become more engaged with their community and participate in events. Jan’s involvement is truly appreciated.
Meet Raymond Doiron. Raymond has been key in the development of the sport of pickleball in the Town of Quispamsis. Since his initial role in providing leadership for the sport through the 50+ Friendship Games, Ray has helped numerous people become fans and avid players. Recently, Ray volunteered to assist the Quispamsis Community Services Department in the planning of the construction of new outdoor pickleball courts on the qplex property. Ray kindly lead three, well-attended pickleball clinics at the qplex courts. Certainly, Raymond’s generosity, passion and leadership have helped develop the sport of pickleball for all ages in the Town of Quispamsis. Thank you Ray.
