Congratulations to our Outstanding Volunteer

The Board of Directors was pleased to present the 2017 Community Health Services Outstanding Volunteer Contribution award to Lynn Harvey at the Semi-annual Meeting in January.

Lynn has been a volunteer with the CHSA Seniors Advisory Council and the Kohkums Strengthening the Circle Program for many years.  Lynn first joined CHSA as staff in January 1983 and worked in the Counselling Department at both the Downtown and Westside Clinics until her retirement in December 2009.

After retiring from paid employment she continued to give of her time, generously providing hundreds of volunteer hours to Community Clinic activities. She has been active helping with seniors advisory council fundraising events, at Seniors Advisory Council meetings, as well as providing volunteer support to the Aboriginal Grandmothers or Kohkums group.  She was also the volunteer gardener for many years keeping the flower beds at the Downtown Clinic beautiful for all to enjoy.

Not only has she has been generous with her time she is has always been helpful and kind to everyone she has worked with and supported.

Lynn has retired from her volunteer activities with the Seniors Advisory Council and gardening however continues to help out with the Strengthening the Circle program.  We celebrate her many contributions and thank her for her service.
