What do you like best about the organization you volunteered for?

I love how they help our communities and bring together people from all walks of life. I love meeting new people and to help where ever I’m needed, and the organizations that I volunteer with give me purpose. I feel I have been able to do some good in our community and the feedback from those using the organizations’ services has been very positive. I am so grateful to have involved myself with these amazing organizations and meet the people which we serve.

What do you like best about your artwork?

I love the blues, my favourite colour palette. Those quiet shades are what drew me to the painting. The cool serenity in the vastness of the outdoors, mountains, and an open road just makes me happy.

What do you like about the Timeraiser event?

I love the opportunity it gives you to meet new people, to find out more about some of the agencies in Kamloops that need volunteers, and what they do. And well the art is amazing!! That volunteer time is the currency linking the art to the need for volunteers is brilliant! This event came at a perfect time for me as I had just started with Urban Systems earlier in 2017 and they made me aware of the event. My wife is new to Kamloops, so this was a great way for her to meet people and for us to find out where we could be of service in our community. Timeraiser has given me an opportunity to explore something I have been meaning to do but didn’t know how to go about it. Urban as a company, is very community oriented, so working here has given me wonderful opportunities to help out in the community in so many different ways. It’s been awesome.
