As I walk down the halls of the Carleton Place Hospital I am proud to know, and have known, a lot these volunteers whose photos are on the wall. These women and a gent, are what I call *‘baddass’.

I know people are horrified reading that word, but I make no apologies– and why the Chuck Norris reference? See the definition at the end.

These individuals are all tremendous volunteers that are an integral part of the CPDMH team. Their volunteers have come from all walks of life and represent the values and cultural diversity of our local communities.

Your new executive, lead by incoming President Marg LeBlanc, welcomes your ideas and looks forward to chatting with you. Drop by anytime the door is open or leave your ideas in the Auxiliary mailbox.

In the meantime take a glance at some of the faces (male and female) that work, and have worked hard for your community. Take a hop, skip, and jump over to their website and when you see them– please thank them for what they do.

      My mother Carole Bruun was a proud supporter of the hospital for many years and sat on the Auxiliary Board. I can remember the ladies coming to our home and working together in the basement making decorations for the yearly fundraising dance. Each year there would be a different theme and one particular year they made silhouettes of Japanese geisha girls using wall paper to create the kimonos. They were a wonderful group of dedicated women and a lot were former nurses like my mother.
