Thrift Store Volunteers Honoured at Appreciation Luncheon
The “As Good As New” Thrift Store in Manitou has been going strong for nearly three full years now, after first opening on July 5, 2016. In appreciation of the support shown by the many volunteers who assist on a regular basis, the board organized a luncheon to honour them.
The board currently consists of Dee Dee Christoff (chairperson), Harry Brendle, Terry Wiklund, Judy Bradley, Wendy Nanaquewetung, Barb McLean, Linda Pearce, Yvette Baron and Joyce Young.
A lunch of soups, sandwiches and desserts were served on Wednesday, May 8th at the Manitou Legion Hall. As a token of appreciation, each volunteer was also presented with a gift certificate to the Thrift Store. Among their many volunteers, are two local families with three generations volunteering their time and expertise.
Dee Dee welcomed everyone to the luncheon and gave a brief update. “Little did we know the scope of the work involved, the amount of donations to be expected, or if we would even have the support of volunteers. There were so many unknowns, it was frightening at times! However, thanks to your support and encouragement, we feel we’re on the way to success!”
