Velichka, Margaret

Margaret Velichka - Good Citizen Award 2013Margaret Velichka has volunteered with Therapeutic Riding for over 10 years, starting as a side walker. She is currently sitting on the Board of Directors as recording secretary. Her career with Thunder Bay Therapeutic Riding Association (TBTRA) has covered every aspect of need.  Margaret assists riders prior to their riding, (she is affectionately known as “Helmet Lady”) provides meals during haying, assists with fundraising, pancake breakfasts and auctions, helping anyway she can. All of the above activities have a direct impact on riders, parents, co-volunteers and others involved in therapeutic riding. Her length of service is an indication of her dedication to the programme. People like Margaret are the backbone of volunteer fellowship.
