Things are happening in a tiny office just down the hallway from the offices of the Journal du Haut-Saint-François, at 57 Craig N. in Cookshire. Good things. The new occupant of the little office is Diane Grenier, and right now she's deep into papers and brochures and getting to know people. She's a people person, so that makes her eyes light up with genuine enjoyment.

Diane is the new bilingual employee of the Centre d'action bénévole (Volunteer Action Centre, CAB) du Haut-Saint-François. She's responsible for the CAB's services in English, things like Meals on Wheels, transportation with volunteer drivers, supporting Viactive volunteers, caregiver support groups, and an income tax service for persons with limited income.

A relatively new service the CAB offers is frozen meals. You can order a minimum of eight meals at a time, choosing the kind of food you like. They're delivered every two weeks, and you can choose whether or how much you want each time. You give your order by phone to - guess who - Diane. Each meal costs only $5. Desserts and soups are $1 each.

No one welcomes Diane more than I do, because I'm passing this job over to her. It's been an honour and a pleasure to work with the good and creative folks at the CAB, and all of those who have been involved in the CAB's activities over the past five years. (You know who you are!) But my plate runneth over, and I'm looking forward to having more time for some more leisurely activities, such as reading and writing, for example. Or travelling!

To reach Diane, just phone the CAB at 819-560-8540 (option 9 for English) or 819-238-8541 or email her at Ask her about the new Health Passport. Or how to volunteer. She'll be delighted!
