E.A. Rawlinson Centre2

On Tuesday, June 17, the E. A. Rawlinson Centre annual Volunteer Recognition Event was held.

The E. A. Rawlinson Centre has a wonderful group of volunteers who dedicate many hours of their time to the community.  Every hour served by volunteers is appreciated but at the annual recognition event, people who have reached special milestones are recognized.

Those people who have served 100 hours are Joanne Johnston and Rena Meyers.  The recipient of the 250-hour certificate is Ed Horn.  Linda Breadner is recognized for 500 hours and Vena Bantle and Karen Hindle for 750 hours.

Jean Freeland, who chairs the Creative Resources Crew, achieved her 1,000-hour certificate.  Roger Williams, one of our many long term volunteers was recognized for his 1,250 hours.

New volunteers were recognized and welcomed aboard.  They include Cassie DeForest, Cheryl Hislop, Sean Fisher and Keenan Gluckinson. Cheryl Chester and Sheron Usselman were recognized for having volunteered for one year. 

Five-year volunteers include Rose Heit, Rena Meyers, Jean Markowsky, Freddie Peet, Shannon Poppy, Doug Porcina, Roseann Rousson and Connor Young.  Volunteers receiving recognition for 10 years of service include Lorraine Brokop, Peggi Dupuis, Sharon Meyer, Bertha Samson, Barry Swanson and Diane Sumners.

Hats off to the entire volunteer company! 

The E. A. Rawlinson Centre volunteers are the face of the E. A. Rawlinson Centre to the patrons.  Front of House Volunteers work as ushers, at the bar and sell merchandise. The Creative Resources Crew assists in spreading the word about events at the E. A. Rawlinson Centre. Every month they distribute posters and handbills to approximately 75 businesses and professional offices in the City of Prince Albert. 

They also represent the E. A. Rawlinson Centre at trade shows, where they distribute promotional material, answer questions and encourage people to enter free draws for tickets.  These trade shows are very important for reaching for expanding our audience.

The Creative Resources Crew also assists in decorating and carrying out special events. The Stage Crew assists behind the scenes helping to load in large shows.  They also assist back stage particularly for the Broadway North productions in the areas of lighting, sound, on the fly floor or as part of the running crew.

The E. A. Rawlinson Centre is an exciting place to volunteer.  Application forms are available at the Box Office or on-line.

See you in the theatre.
