At a recent Neighbourlink board meeting, chairperson Sharlene Page and Debbie Courtis paid tribute to long-
time church volunteer coordinator and St. Augustine’s parishioner, Bev Orieux.
Former priest Robin Walker recalls Neighbourlink as a hard sell, but a few volunteers stepped up to visit, drive people to appointments and for shopping, play cards, rake leaves, shop and help neighbours in a neighbourly fashion. The World Vision program took off Canada wide.
Twenty years later Bev was still holding the position coordinating volunteers – dedication at its finest.
All of us thank Bev for her devotion to this outreach ministry.
