I’m a volunteer for the Canada Winter Games, and last week, I went to pick up my uniform.
Every step of the journey to become a volunteer has been handled with a high degree of professionalism and organization.
Stepping into the uniform distribution and accreditation centre, I was greeted with a pleasant, “How may I help you?”
At every station, without fail, I was served by well-trained, polite but extremely friendly volunteers.
Yes, I am very thankful for all the volunteer Columbia gear, but what I came away with was way more: respect and a sense of pride in each volunteer who assisted me.
I can’t say enough about how impressed I was with everyone I encountered there.
If this is what treatment all our athletes and visitors will receive, we can do Red Deer proud.
