Rose, a Village Mosaic Volunteer
Rose shares her volunteer experiences at Village Mosaic.
I have been a volunteer at Village Mosaic for almost three years. A long time friend who works with the Sisters of St. Joseph told me about how Village Mosaic would be a place on the Lake Shore where seniors could gather and socialize. I decided to look into it. I was immediately made to feel welcome by Sister Anne Marie Marrin, Sister Conrad Lauber and Sister Elaine Guidinger.
There is always something going on at Village Mosaic on Wednesdays: line dancing, singing or games. There is a monthly party celebrating Canada Day, Christmas, St. Patrick's Day and many other occasions. In my role as a hostess, I help prepare and serve refreshments for the activity, and of course socialize with the seniors!
Last fall, Village Mosaic hosted an Arts and Crafts showcase. It was incredible to see all the talent in our community. There were paintings, woodworking, knitting and so much more.
Volunteering at Village Mosaic has been a wonderful experience for me. I feel what I have gained far exceeds my contribution. I am thankful to have met so many special people and be a part of the supportive Village Mosaic community.
