Central Plains Cancer Care staff accept the Volunteer Representative Recognition Award.


The Central Regional Health Authority is in the black after their last fiscal year.  Despite tough economic times, the RHA was pleased to announce a surplus at last night's annual public meeting, held at Portage's PCU Centre.  CEO Kathy McPhail says some last minute funding from Manitoba Health is to thank for the boost in the group's end of the year numbers.  

Last night was also a chance to recognize the hard work of volunteers in the region.  The volunteer representative recognition award was given to Central Plains Cancer Care this year.  Resource Coordinator Daisy Dowhy says the best part of being a volunteer is knowing you've made a difference in the lives of the people you're helping.  McPhail commended Dowhy and her staff for all the work they do in the Central Plains Region, saying volunteers are the back bone of Canadian society.


There was a good crowd on hand at the PCU Centre last night for the CRHA's annual public meeting.
