Every year a the Founders Cup is awarded to a volunteer who exemplifies the mission of the BCC. We held a volunteer appreciation outside the BCC in the parking lot. It was a drive in lunch. The weather was perfect and we were able to sit outside and enjoy lunch made by volunteers.
GARY VON RODEN
This volunteer is someone who you do not see often because he works quietly and efficiently in the background. He proactively identifies maintenance opportunities. Examples of his work include:
- Making sure appliances work in top form.
- Regularly cleaning compressors and replacing bulbs in refrigerators
- Installing timers on fans in the washrooms.
Working with on the sound crew team of the Dinner theatre Gary stores, documents and keeps all the items used in a neat, compact manner so anyone can find it. A “MacGyver” of making items works, give it to Gary and he will figure it out. If he doesn’t not know how to fix something, he researches it and finds the best way to repair.
All in all, Gary is an outstanding volunteer who, when asked will help any way he can behind the scenes.
