For the Directors and Honourary Directors of T-SAR, 2014 was a year of significant accomplishment... with the promise that 2015 will be frenetic as Canada's newest Coast Guard Auxilliary unit takes to the water. But a quiet December evening spent enjoying a pot-luck supper at the home of Kathryn Langley-Hope was an occasion to take stock and pass on some 'attaboys'.
However, for those who could make it (all but five of our number, but then mid-December is so busy in other ways), it was also a confirmation of something we already know. Volunteer work is a duty and often a painful one, but it does help when such a diverse group of people come together in common cause in a perfect spirit of amity and cooperation.
Some of us are highly tech-savy, and some of have us can barely navigate a key-board. Some of us are right wingers and some of us are totally progressive urbanites, and we cover all the points in between. Yet our enthusiasm and the pleasure we take from accomplishing our mutual goals is very real. Our civic spirit and dedication are burnished by the mutual recognition of the unique qualities we bring together in common purpose... and there is a joy in that which is always in season.
