Richmond County Volunteer of the Month - June 2020
Published: Monday, 06 July 2020 15:25
We would like to take this time to acknowledge Elaine Boudreau as Richmond County's Volunteer of the Month for June 2020!
"Elaine works with the religious education program and liturgy of the word for children.
The planning and delivering of these programs take up an enormous amount of her time. The children are very excited and look forward to their next class wondering what creation she will present to them next.
For years she has planned programs and purchased items to design crafts and symbols that will have children understand at their level, what it all means. She brings the children back to the basics and reaches them in a way like no other.
She delivers Holy communion to the sick and shut-ins and has helped with many meals prepared by the CWL. She has decorated and opened her home during several of the open houses during the Christmas season as a fundraiser for different causes and has supported any event that passes her way including minor hockey, food banks and much more.
Besides this very consuming time, she has a family and grandchildren and still never misses an event that she can support throughout the community. No matter what you need, she is there to help.
We want to thank Elaine for her important work in her community and our county!
As Volunteer of the Month, Elaine will receive a plaque and $150 of gift cards to local businesses of her choosing.
