Diners Club (Seniors Luncheon) On-Pause

Due to COVID-19 Restrictions, this program is currently

On-Pause

Attend one of our Diners Club luncheons to help serve our clients a nutritious meal. 

Our Diners Clubs are offered in Port Lambton, Corunna, Alvinston and Petrolia.

They offer a hot meal, and an opportunity for socializing with other seniors.  A guest speaker or entertainer follows the meal.

Volunteers assist with setting up tables, collecting money, serving the meal, and clean up. They are encouraged to join the clients at lunch (complimentary).

Storytelling Volunteer

Our seniors have life experiences and stories in their memory bank that are worth preserving for generations to come.  VON will provide storytelling volunteers with a set of questions.  They meet with a client once a week for eight to ten weeks asking questions and recording the answers.  They will then compile the questions and answers into a binder to present to the client.  Resources and training are provided.

Special Event Volunteers

Volunteers needed for Juke Box Challenge held each March. We need outgoing, proactive and organized volunteers to join our committee, help plan & work on the night of the event. Don’t want a long term commitment? That’s okay because we need many “night of” volunteers. If this interests you, please give us a call or send us an email.
