Sign of the times for VJH volunteers

Vernon hospital helpers recognized with sign erected saying ‘thank you’

The volunteer help Liz Lecoupe receives at Vernon Jubilee Hospital is outstanding.

Mother Nature, on the other hand, not so cooperative.

On a recent Thursday prior to Christmas, Lecoupe arranged for a sign to be erected for the day beside the hospital’s main entrance that said simply ‘THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS.’

But it was a windy morning and…

“I’m going to have to find a way to have the sign secured,” laughed Lecoupe, coordinator of volunteer services at VJH. On this morning, she had help from Lesa Ryz, Susan Lum and Sheila Bowlware in getting the sign secured and posted as parts of the signs were blown about the grounds.

As they worked with the sign, passersby honked in support.

The sign was donated by Crystal Leese at Celebration Sings Okanagan.

The vision of VJH Volunteer Services is to set new standards of excellence in the delivery of health services in the province.

The group follows the values of quality, integrity, respect and trust.
