ALMONTE – Almonte hospital volunteer Paul Brennae earned his wings in a ceremony honouring the hospital’s volunteers.
“Every year, at the Volunteer Appreciation Event, President and CEO Mary Wilson Trider presents an exceptional volunteer with a Guardian Angel Pin,” Arnprior General Hospital staff said in a release. “Nominations are submitted by members of the leadership team and describe exceptional service generously given by the volunteer nominees. It is always a difficult choice. This year’s recipient is definitely deserving and is described as having an infectious attitude, enthusiasm and dedication. Congratulations to Paul Brennae.”
“Paul has done a tremendous amount of work for Almonte General Hospital, performing in many roles over the last two years,” Trider said. “He sets the bar high and truly makes a difference in the lives of our patients, staff and volunteers.”
Brennae’s volunteer roles have included everything from front door greeter to helping to organize Patient Safety Week to being part of the gift shop team. He has also taken on new projects such as helping to re-design the Physiotherapy Department layout, create the volunteer newsletter and support colleagues by teaching computer skills.
One of Brennae’s nominators said “I look forward to interacting with Paul as he is always spreading joy and happiness. He is an amazing example of what it means to live AGH Values.”
