It is said that Saskatchewan is known for volunteer spirit and Ms. Doreen Brown embodies that spirit having lived a life of service to her community. She had a long career at St. Paul’s Hospital, touching many lives in the process.
Since 2001, Doreen Brown has volunteered as the Coordinator for the SPS Volunteer Program. She organizes, recruits and leads volunteers to represent our Service at public events and conferences. She makes a special effort to get to know each volunteer, meeting with them once they express interest, and making sure they are as committed as she has been in representing the SPS. Ms. Brown has limitless energy and patience in coordinating people from a variety of backgrounds and ensures that each event is well staffed and supported.
The annual Rotary Badge, Shield and Star Recognition Dinner is being held on April 10 and this year the SPS will be honouring Ms. Brown with the Badge Award, a special citizen recognition.
Keynote speakers at the dinner include retired SPS Sgt. Ernie Louttit and singer-songwriter, Donny Parenteau.
Proceeds from the dinner enable the Rotary Club of Saskatoon to continue to support and grow the Rotary Restorative Action Program, a unique and successful restorative justice program currently operating in Mount Royal, Bedford Road, E.D. Feehan, Bethlehem, Bishop James Mahoney, Tommy Douglas and Walter Murray collegiates.
