VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION DAY
By Staff Writer
Over 30 volunteers, board members and guests came out to the JCCC’s Hosaki Room on Sunday, November 22, 2014, to celebrate JSS’s Annual Volunteer Appreciation Party. All attendees were treated to a wonderful lunch catered by longtime JSS supporter and volunteer Mr. Tak Yoshida and his wife Fumiko. The feast included numerous salads, breaded shrimp, pork tonkatsu, as well as a special warm somen.
The attendees were then treated to a special dessert of cake dedicated to the office administrator and volunteer coordinator who will be leaving in December. During dessert volunteers were invited to address the audience telling everyone what they do for JSS.
Special guests at the party included Mrs. Jean Peasah, a former counsellor and board member whom JSS nominated for the Ontario Senior Volunteer Award as well as Mrs. Yukie Fuchigami, an Ontario Service Award nominee who has been volunteering at JSS for over 10 years
