Welcome of the 1 000 000th volunteer in December 2013
106 communities from six Canadian provinces
For Mr. Girard, nothing is more important than the safety of people around him and his journey proves that. Being a member of the organizing committee since 1996, a coordinator from 2001 to 2007 and a member of the sponsorship committee since 1996, Mr. Girard is active in many sectors of the organization. And that’s not all, since 2010 he has volunteered every night as assistant coordinator! As a former police officer in Lac-Mégantic, Mr. Girard has accomplished his dream of implementing Operation Red Nose in his community. He has received help from a ‘Lions club’ friend as well as a social worker in the field of drug addiction.
Mr. Girard loves the feeling of helping change people’s behaviour, when it comes to impaired driving and helping contribute to their safety!
Thank-you Jean for being part of the ORN tradition!
