On Tuesday, April 9th, we hosted our 9th annual Nursing Home Volunteer Awards Gala Dinner as we celebrate national volunteer week. The theme of the evening was "The Volunteer Factor - Lifting Communities". The Volunteer Factor celebrates and recognizes the exponential impact of volunteers and how they lift our communities.
The evening keynote address was delivered by the Honourable Graydon Nicholas; former Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick. We were pleased to have the Premier of New Brunswick, Hon. Blaine Higgs join us in honoring such deserving individuals.
