On April 27th, Amanda Maragos, one of our newest members, presented her classification talk. Amanda is the Manager of Volunteer Services for the Philip Aziz Centre / Emily’s House. PAC/EH were created in 1995 to provide physical, spiritual and emotional support and respite services to individuals, adults and children, who have life-limiting conditions or chronic illnesses, who are often, though not always, in end-of-life situations.
Amanda provided a PowerPoint presentation on their work and history which can be seen here. She spoke also about the recruitment, training, role and contribution of volunteers who assist both in Client Care work in the community and at Emily’s House itself – the latter being dedicated to the care of children and their families.
Steve Mastoras, in thanking Amanda, announced that the funds raised in the annual Whistler’s Grill Golf Tournament, August 12th, would be directed to Emily’s House.
Our fellow Rotarian Jeff Rayman presented President Jim with a flag he was given by the Musanze-Murera Rotary Club during his most recent volunteer project abroad.
