On Thursday January 28th over 30 volunteers joined us at the Officers’ Mess for a reception to recognize volunteer service to the museum in 2015. In total 93 volunteers put in over 1,600 hours!
We were pleased to be joined by Honorary Lieutenant Colonel Lionel Goffart, members of the Museum Board of Governors, and the Deputy Commanding Officer and President of the Officers’ Mess Committee, Major Shawn Stewart.
Thanks to Adam Hermant, Rob Chan, and Pat Di Donato of the Liberty Entertainment Group, we were able to presents some gifts to our top volunteers in terms of hours of service:
- Larry Hicks (235 hours)
- Graham Humphrey (184 hours)
- Shaun Kelly (121 hours)
- Ken Kominek (88 hours)
- Cheryl Copson (77 hours)
- Joe Wyatt (76 hours)
- Rob Grieve (73 hours)
The presentations were followed by a tour of the various messes at Moss Park Armoury which are filled with fascinating collections of military heritage.
We’re also pleased that some of our occasional volunteers have expressed an interest in becoming more regular and we look forward to another successful year in 2016!
