Simcoe, ON – The Volunteer Association to Norfolk General Hospital and The Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home has a long history.  Many volunteers that are still active today are a big part of this history.  During the Annual General Meeting held on Tuesday April 24th, service pins were presented to several volunteers including Ellen Johnson and Elva Broker who both received their 50 year pins!


Elva and Ellen have witnessed many changes over the past 50 years, but one thing has remained, and that is the joy that they receive from volunteering at their hospital and nursing home.  During this time, Elva and Ellen’s volunteer experiences and duties have varied. They have appreciated the opportunity to pick and choose the activities that they enjoy most as well as take on new volunteering opportunities in fundraising and patient care.


Ellen and Elva are highly respected by their fellow volunteers, employees, patient and residents. The hospital and nursing home has benefitted greatly from the services they have provided for the past half century!


Congratulations to Ellen and Elva on this tremendous achievement! Thank you to all of the dedicated volunteers for your care, compassion and contributions to quality patient and resident care in our community.
