Alice Noseworthy, Volunteer of the Year Award for 2012-2013
MR. MURPHY: Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
I rise today to say thank you to an outstanding volunteer. Ruby Hann was the recipient of the Alice Noseworthy Volunteer of the Year Award for 2012-2013. The award is presented by the Seniors Outreach Program of the City of St. John's in memory of Alice Noseworthy, a long-time volunteer and participant in the city's seniors program.
Her family donated the award to remember Alice and to recognize other volunteers who enriched the community. Ruby is a long-time participant of the seniors' program and, according to her award citation, has always been there to lend a helping hand. The citation noted Ruby's support with everything from poster distribution to recruiting new participants.
Ruby's volunteerism extends beyond the city program; she is also an active member at the Kenny's Park apartments, where she lives, helping with the social club there get funding. She is known for being a volunteer who always rises to any occasion, even when called upon unexpectedly.
Mr. Speaker, I ask all hon. members to join me in congratulating Ruby Hann, winner of the Alice Noseworthy Volunteer of the Year Award for 2012-2013.
Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
