Shirley McGonigal, a longtime member of United Churches of Langley, was named the 2018 Eric Flowerdew Volunteer of the Year for Langley Township.
The award is presented to an individual who promotes an active living lifestyle that enhances Langley's quality of life and community spirit.
Shirley is a well-deserved winner of this award. A retired nurse, Shirley continues caring for people, visiting those who are ill or housebound, shopping and preparing meals, performing wound care, taking seniors to appointments, and visiting patients who are in hospital or care facilities.
Shirley is also active in our church in many ways. She serves with Pastoral Care and Prayer Shawl ministries, organises memorial receptions, teas, and craft fairs, as well as delivering cards and cookies at Easter and Christmas.
