Set Up Crew - Thunder Bay 55 Plus Centre

Set Up Crew – Thunder Bay 55 Plus Centre - Good Citizen Award 2015The Set Up Crew at the Thunder Bay 55 Plus Centre is an integral part of the centre’s team.  Every week, a number of volunteers set up for regular activities including the weekly dances, Saturday bingo and Sunday entertainment.  The crew also sets up for other events and special fundraisers such as the Harvest Craft Market, where every room in the building is utilized.  It is important to note that often the Set Up Crew is not seen doing their work, but they indirectly touch the lives of the many older adults who come to the centre to enjoy the activities.  Without the volunteer crew, setting up for various events would put a lot of extra work on the staff as well as on the event organizers.  The members of the Set Up Crew have changed since its inception 25 years ago, but the hard work and dedication remain the same. This group helps to facilitate inclusion and social engagement for the senior members of our community.
