It is her smiling face, her loving spirit, her compassion and patience that make Anne Hebert stand out as one of the most dedicated volunteers in Trail. For eighteen years, since her retirement from COMINCO at age 65, Anne has volunteered every week at Kate’s Kitchen, a lunch program of Trail’s Salvation Army. They can always count on her to be there … to make the soup and sandwiches, to interact with the clients, to train new volunteers. She is a regular, too, at the care home, Poplar Ridge Pavilion, assisting with birthday celebrations. She makes others feel good, her happy attitude is contagious. Anne continues to do all of this at the young age of 85.
