Wetaskiwin Hospital Auxiliary Names Volunteer Of The Year

Pipestone Flyer

Members of the Wetaskiwin Hospital Auxiliary gathered at the Wayside Inn on December 9, 2014 to share a delicious turkey meal with all the trimmings. The evening was abound with fellowship and friendship evidenced by the abundant laughs during a fun gift exchange. But, the real highlight of the evening was the announcement of the 2014 Volunteer of the Year Award that went to Wilma Neufeld.

“This year we would like to pay tribute to Wilma Neufeld as our Volunteer of the Year 2014” announced Selma Stobbe, a loyal Auxiliary volunteer.

Selma outlines some of the loyal contributions made by Wilma over many years. “Wilma is a retired teacher who has been a member since 1992 and has served many functions. She is always willing to do whatever needs to be done at the time. She has run the lunch counter at our annual craft sale, prepared and sold many hot dogs at our garage sales, prepared the stockings for the Christmas and New Year’s babies, volunteered at the Flu and Blood Donor Clinics and has been a regular and reliable Gift Shop volunteer.

She also attended many conventions on our behalf to learn what others are doing in our field and recruited, trained and supported many of our most valuable members.”

Wilma played many important executive roles with the Auxiliary. She was treasurer from 1997 to 2003 and was president from 2003 to 2006 and stepped forward once again, from 2010 to 2012. She also served as President of Affiliated Auxiliaries of DTHR (David Thompson Health Region). Wilma became a Life Member of the local Auxiliary in February of 2007.

“When the need arose a couple of years ago, Wilma stepped in to fill the role of Gift Shop Manager. It is a challenging job with many challenges and lots of stress at times – but Wilma’s commitment and her great sense of humour help her to continue to do an excellent job. We are privileged to have Wilma volunteer on our team and would like to say a huge Thank You for all she does.”
