Helen and Ron Fortier and Marlene and Al Smith - the Jasper Place Bingo Volunteers have run the Bingo program every Monday and Wednesday evening for a combined total of 15 years. These volunteers are so dedicated that the bingos run 52 weeks a year.

Helen, Ron, Marlene and Al are very independent, arrive with a smile on their faces and persevere through the challenges that the PA system presents. They make an excellent team as they share the duties in a tag team approach and encourage tenants to participate in other equally important tasks to ensure the bingos run smoothly. Their calling voices are loud and clear so no resident misses a number. This is particularly critical when the pot climbs to a staggering $2 prize.

It is impossible to measure the pleasure that the Jasper Place Bingo Volunteers have provided to the residents and the support they have provided to the staff. Their dedication and commitment make them truly worthy recipients of this award.
