FROM WHERE I SIT… CELEBRATE A SENIOR VOLUNTEER
On June 16 the Grimsby Seniors Club will thank their volunteers with a luncheon and
celebrate with them the efforts and contributions they make to the club’s programs and
activities. These events don’t run themselves, but it is thanks to their efforts that they run
without a hitch.
Did you know that volunteering has some history The noun volunteer “one who offers
himself for military service” comes from the French “voluntaire” and was first recorded during the 1630s.
During the 19th century something like an awakening happened, as people became aware of the poor, needy
and underprivileged in their communities and provided them with a helping hand in various ways.
Wars and disasters led to the beginnings of the Canadian Red Cross, established in 1895 by certain
individuals who were familiar with The Red Cross movement that had taken root in Europe during the 1860’s
and 1870’s. Then and now It has mobilized many volunteers for disaster relief efforts, first aid and water
training, community health and restoration of family links. The Salvation Army is probably one of the oldest
and largest non-profit charity organizations, working with disadvantaged people. The Great Depression and
World War II saw a large increase in coordinate volunteering, and today there are numerous non-profit
organizations and service clubs in cities, towns and communities nationwide lending a helping hand to those
who need them.
In 2010 over 13.3 million people –accounting for 47% of Canadian
aged 15 and over – did volunteer work. They devoted almost 2.07
billion hours to their volunteer activities.
One only needs to take a look in the Town of Grimsby Leisure Guide to find more than 60 community service
clubs and groups serving our community with a host of hundreds of volunteers. They are involved with the
arts, with sports, with history, with agriculture with housing, with guiding and mentoring , with child welfare,
with young people, with seniors, and much more. They are the true grit of the community. The Grimsby
Seniors Club is one of them, with a club advisory committee and more than 20 programs with nearly 70
volunteers. These people make it possible for our Seniors Club to provide a friendly, caring and sharing,
atmosphere for the seniors of our community. Volunteers are a valuable asset to any voluntary organization.
Paul Berton, Hamilton Spectator Editor, recently wrote “Most volunteers report that volunteering benefits
them more than those they volunteer to help. Most say it helps them develop new skills, gain new
experiences, get healthier both mentally and physically. It also helps them understand the world better.
"Take a moment today, to-morrow next week or month to say thank you to a volunteer for a job well done.
And if you have not done so, you may want to consider your time and talent as a volunteer.

HEALTH WATCH
The stairway to health!
There are a variety of benefits to programs that encourage the use of stairways,
as part of physical activity in workplaces or other settings. These benefits may
include improved morale, a sense of well-being, higher energy levels and
improved team building. Below are the measurable benefits that are indicated
in research on stair use.
- Canada’s Physical Activity Guide recommends that Canadians accumulate 30-60 minutes of moderate
physical activity each day.
- Stair climbing is possible in many workplaces and requires no special equipment in order to participate.
- There is evidence to suggest that moderate intensity lifestyle activities like taking the stairs may be more
successfully promoted than structured vigorous intensity exercise programs (Kerr, 2001).
- Stair climbing can be accumulated across the course of the day, making a significant contribution to 30
minutes of daily physical activity (Kerr, 2001).
- Stair climbing interventions typically result in a 6-15% increase in use of stairs.
- A significantly lower risk of mortality is indicated in studies where participants climbed more than 55
flights per week. (Paffenbarger et al. 1993).
- Stair climbing requires about 8-11kcal of energy per minute, which is high compared to other physical
activities (Edwards, 1983).
- Active stair climbers are more fit and have a higher aerobic capacity (Ilmarinen et al, 1978).
- Even two flights of stairs climbed per day can lead to 2.7 kg in weight loss over one year (Brownell,
Stunkard, and ALbaum, 1980).
- There is a strong association between stair climbing and bone density in post-menopausal women
(Coupland et al. 1999).
- Stair climbing programs can improve the amount of “good cholesterol” in the blood–HDL concentrations
(Wallace and Neill, 2000).

WRITERS CORNER
JAMMING WITH GRACE - By Loi O’Sullivan
When I arrived at Vera and Larry Grace’s home for their interview, their welcoming smiles assured a pleasant
visit. Daisy, their white/brown collie, ushered us into the living room, puzzled by the interruption of their
afternoon repose. In anticipation of my questions, I assured my hosts of an informal interview. We relaxed
with smiles; even Daisy settled down and closed her eyes.
I asked both of them, “How did you meet”? Immediately, Vera replied, “It was following the hunt, ‘The
Beagle Hunt’, at Limerick, in 1959 when I saw Larry”. Larry responded with, “She grabbed my arm and said,
‘It was love at first sight, I had never seen such a tall, dark, and handsome man before’ ”; Vera agreed and
repeated his quote. Larry said when he saw Vera, “she had long, red hair and a lovely smile”. (Larry was
colour blind; his friends told him later that Vera had brown hair). Any while, the girl with the red (brown)
hair married Larry in Ireland, 1960.
The Graces immigrated to Canada 1966, bringing their 2 children Brendan 5, and Veronica 3. The family
resides mostly in Grimsby. Larry worked for a USA steel company via to Stelco, and Dafasco. Presently, the
Graces extended the family to include spouses and four grandchildren; two married, two attending
university, and the thirteen years old canine, Daisy. Larry’s ego lives on, he said Vera was right; “he is still
handsome, slim, humorous and honest”.
I was admiring the beautiful small intricate marquetry wood table, Vera proudly admitted that she made
it, and she was awarded second prize at the “Woodcraft Show,” in Hamilton three years ago; “Blue Ribbon”,
good job!!! Vera volunteered in Palliative Care, at the Rose Cottage for sixteen years.
Larry joins Vera in attending weekly Sit and Get Fit classes at the Livingston Activity Centre. They benefit
from the group socializing, and maybe in the process they may get fit; another reward could be to appease
their instructor, Emily; - a Gold Star?
Music is Larry’s passion. As a boy, he loved the lure of the accordion. Larry’s father’s beloved antique fiddle,
sits on the piano. Later, Larry formed the “Good Time Music Band”, with 5 musicians. Over the years, the
Band evolved with various, instruments, vocals and group size. Larry reflected on the Band’s hypnotizing
harmonies while playing in any celebrative event – concerts, weddings, retirement homes, etc. The Band has
aged; therefore, their appointments are limited to every Wednesday evenings, a free jamming session.
The Graces, host an annual, “Celebration of Life”. They invite neighbors,
friends and musicians to share food a pig roast and laughter, and all
while jamming in their garden. “They love it”.
“As a model citizen in Grimsby, what is the secret of your longevity?”
Vera replied that, “Larry was easy to live with, humorous and still
handsome”; Larry said,” I have all her money, and half her bed, and she
(Vera) has always adored me; and she looks the same - long red hair and
beautiful smile”.
Thank you Larry and Vera for sharing ... honestly...
