Elsie Koivisto

Elsie has been an active and dedicated volunteer at the Thunder Bay 55+ Centre for the past 10 years.  Her involvement has included fundraising for the Centre, special events and organizing the bus to Grand Portage from the Centre once a month.  She was part of the Cando Players and the Saints, a shopper for Christmas cheer and in earlier years volunteered at the Port Arthur General Hospital's gift shop and at the Shelter House.  She is a life member of the Ladies of the Moose, the Eastern Star and the Ladies Auxiliary Branch 5 of the Port Arthur Legion.  Today, at almost 95, Elsie sings in the Interlink choir, works at bingos, luncheons, teas and banquets at the Legion, the Moose and the 55 Plus Centre.  Elsie's commitment and enthusiasm for volunteering is a wonderful example for all generations in our community.
