Volunteer Spotlight

Volunteer Spotlight - May 2023-2


Meet Ruth Pogue

We are featuring our wonderful tax preparer, Ruth Pogue, this month! Ruth has been volunteering in this role since 2019. She first learned of the role when “Two friends were volunteering in the foot clinic and mentioned that the Kerby Centre offered a tax clinic for seniors.” Currently, Ruth only volunteers for the annual tax clinic from February to April, but she let us know she might also enjoy opportunities during the rest of the year.

When asked why she continues to volunteer, Ruth said, “I think of myself as a tax nerd; I look forward to tax season! I enjoy providing this service to seniors. The clients are so appreciative and grateful for this service that the Kerby Centre offers.” Regarding Kerby, she most enjoys that the “Kerby Centre helps so many people in so many ways. It is a very positive environment. My favourite thing is listening to the band and watching the dancers on Wednesday lunch hour.”

Ruth’s hobbies include travelling, gardening, pickleball and golf. Choosing to answer the question What makes you smile? Ruth said,
“Watching our adult children succeed at life and spending time with them and their partners.” So far, Ruth has contributed over 456 hours.

Thank-you, Ruth, for all you do for the Kerby Centre!

Medicine Hat

Meet Sandy Seifert

Happy Easter from Sandy, our volunteer of the month for April. Sandy is a volunteer receptionist working at the front desk at the Veiner Centre, greeting people, giving tours of the facility, answering questions, selling memberships and registrations for all the activities we offer. She has been volunteering since 2013 after retiring from a life in the Tourism and Hospitality industry, thus she knows how important it is to have a facility where people feel welcomed.

Sandy  has also benefitted from the many friendships she has made and the activities she participates in. She loves living in Medicine Hat and being surrounded by all her family and friends, but also really enjoys  when she gets the chance to travel. Between listening to classical and Big Band music, reading historical fiction and biographies, or spending time at Veiner Centre,

Sandy is always busy. If she could change one thing about herself it would be to overcome her habit of procrastinating. Thank you, Sandy, for all that you do and for your 10 years of service and commitment to the Veiner Centre! We hope the Easter Bunny brings you a basket full of goodies!

If you would like to volunteer for MOW in Medicine Hat, please email [email protected]
