  • Sunrise Volunteers

    Sunrise Volunteers turned 50 years this year. I am proud to say that my daughter Angela Smith and myself have been volunteering for 21 of those years.

    We started in June 1996 after Angela graduated from high school. We fell in love with residents, we went 8 hours a day, 3 days a week for a year until I switched over to working as Social Service Assistant. We helped out with lots of the activities including bingo, rhythm band and crafts. To see the smile on residents’ faces when they saw us was priceless.

    Thought for the week: Life can never promise you to be happy, but life gets better after you accept things you just can’t change.
