Fontbonne Recognizes its Many Volunteers
On May 7, 2006, Fontbonne Ministries threw a party to thank the many volunteers for their help. During lunch, a guitar played softly in the background. All volunteers received a green Fontbonne mug filled with coffee beans.
Volunteer coordinator Leanne Kloppenborg quoted from a poem by Joy Cowley, The Bridge, to describe the role volunteers fulfill so well:
"There are times in life
when we are called to be bridges,
not a great monument spanning a distance
and carrying loads of heavy traffic,
but a simple bridge to help one person from here to there..."
