Red Cross Honours Local Volunteers

Local Red Cross volunteers were honoured for the service and support in a dinner last night.

Senior Services Coordinator Darlene Trovarello says the annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner is about honouring those who are the real "heart" of the Red Cross, emphasizing there would be no services without the volunteers.

Trovarello notes five volunteers were highlighted for meeting major milestones with the Red Cross.

Trovarello also reminded there's been some growth at the Red Cross, which moved to a new office last month - partly to accommodate the upcoming Seniors Day Service - and with the recent five-year extension of the White River transportation program, which is now set to continue to 2023.
