We Appreciate You!

It’s Volunteer Appreciation at the Council on Aging! A special Luncheon was held on June 6th for those who volunteered 20 or more hours from July 2017 to June 30, 2018. Together they’ve logged in over 3,400 hours. Their “gift of time” is worth $70,890 to our town.

Attorney Jason Rawlins from Bridgewater was one of 7 volunteers who received the Volunteer of the Year Award. He gives his time one day a month with free legal advice to seniors and family members in Halifax. He’s been doing it for over 6 years!

She has helped many seniors with health insurance, medications & costs, getting them on the most beneficial plan, etc.

Thank you for all you’ve done!
