The 2020 Volunteer Appreciation Tea and awards presentation postponed to 2021.

 

Due to COVID-19 monthly Victorian Tea for 2020 has been cancelled. GHHS volunteers are waiting patiently to when they could gather again for events. In the meantime, some masks were needed, with a call to some volunteers the masks were sewn. In the GHHS President’s message to all volunteers and members, she thanked “the volunteers who donated their talents, time and materials to produce more than 90 masks.” This is the kind of commitment that you see in all GHHS volunteers whenever they are called upon to help with any event. Thank you! Looking forward to coming together soon.

Many people might not realize that GHHS has Junior and adult members. The junior members known as Jocko’s Friends (JF), was named after Jocko a Capuchin monkey and the companion of the last Lieutenant Governor of the Northwest Territories and the first Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, Amédée Forget. Jocko’s Friends has two levels of membership; Junior members (ages 6-12) and Senior members (ages 13-16). It’s only $5 a year to register your child to become GHHS junior member. Jocko’s Friends are also active volunteers at GHHS/GH events, and in 2019 they recorded 244 volunteers hours.
