NEWSLETTER – February 2018


Featured February Volunteer: Peter Duncan

Peter Duncan
Peter Duncan: Board member since May 2017. Pictured here with his wife Bev.

Before his retirement Peter worked as a city bus driver in Vancouver for over 30 years. He lived in Cultus Lake and commuted to work for 14 of those years.
Eventually he and his wife moved into Chilliwack, where they now reside.

Before that, (in his younger years), he was part of a local rock & roll band called Stallion Thumbrock for 3 years. As the Road Manager he traveled with the band across Canada. They even have a few albums.

Wow! Who knew we had a Rock Star among us. 😊

After retirement he volunteered at the Chilliwack Senior Recreation Centre over on College Street for a couple of years doing maintenance for the organization.

Then he saw an ad in the paper for training with CSPC. He considered it and thought to himself. “I would really like to do that”. He took the course and really enjoys being a counsellor. He also attended the Directors meetings and became aware of the different aspects of Chilliwack Senior Peer Counsellors. When the call was sent out for interested members to participate as a Director he stepped up to the plate. In May of 2017 he allowed his name to stand for the position of Vice President and was voted in.

Peter is a dedicated board member. He has a genuine concern for the seniors in our community and his thoughtful input regarding the day to day operations of the organization as well as our future direction is always appreciated.
