September 2017 marked a very special day for the Friends of the University Hospital as well of the University of Alberta Hospital. Irene Harrington celebrated 40 years of service as a Volunteer with the hospital!
Irene originally came to the hospital when her young children were in school and she was looking for a volunteer opportunity. She came to the hospital and has not looked back since. When asked why she does it? "The people. It's all about the people I meet everyday. Its the one time in the week I know I will have fun and it's still fun".
Thank you Irene for all your years of Volunteering and for choosing us!
