Volunteer of the Week: Gail Lidstone

June 22, 2010

Each week, WJB profiles one of its volunteers as part of its commitment to recognizing all their selfless contributions to our cause. This week, our featured volunteer is Gail Lidstone.

Gail’s passion for volunteering shows! Last year may have been her first year volunteering at the Wreckhouse International Jazz & Blues Festival, but we must have made an impression, because she has put in an effort to make sure we had her on our list for the upcoming 2010 Festival (now just three weeks away). We look forward to her help again this year as a ticketing agent, merchandise vendor, and information representative.

Outside of the Festival, Gail’s volunteering portfolio spills over with patriotism and hometown pride. Each year, she helps out with the Canada Day celebrations and recently she assisted with the Olympic torch relay it passed through our community. Additionally, Gail is an Ambassador with Cruse NL and a volunteer at the St. John’s Folk Festival and Festival 500.

In her spare time, Gail enjoys singing with the choir, walking and reading. At 65, Gail has retired after a 29-year tenure at Memorial University.

Hope to see you at the 2010 Volunteer Rally tonight, Gail! You are this week’s Volunteer of the Week!
