Recognizing Al Dunphy, an extraordinary volunteer

I made the following statement today in the House of Assembly:

I stand in the House today to recognize a resident of St. John’s North whose spirit of volunteerism truly surpasses the ordinary.

Mr. Al Dunphy has lived in the Rabbittown neighborhood for over 40 years, and has been actively involved with the Rabbittown Community Centre for the past decade.

Al helps out where and whenever he can by lending an eager hand.  When he isn’t participating in the Rabbittown Community Centre’s programs, Al regularly finds opportunities to assist with them. He frequently pitches in by helping with the preparation, set-up, and take-down of the Community Centre’s special events.

The staff at the Rabbittown Community Centre tell me that Al is a tremendous support to them. And, they are looking forward to his continued service to the Rabbittown community for many years to come.

This past year Al Dunphy received the Volunteer of the Year Award from the Rabbittown Community Centre. This was in recognition of his on-going contributions to the Rabbittown community and the important work of the Community Centre itself.

I ask all hon. members to join me in congratulating Mr. Dunphy on being recognized for his exemplary volunteer work.
