Claudette Trewin – New Brunswick Liquor Corporation
Claudette is married with two sons and 3 grandsons. When describing her husband Ron, she always describes him as an amazing husband, who since his retirement in 2000 has spent many hours volunteering in their community. She has and continues to spend much of her leisure time at hockey rinks as a hockey mom and grandmother. Her grandsons 5, 7 and 8 are the idle of her life. They play hockey and are involved in many activities in their communities. Cooking is her passion along with entertaining. Being able to provide for others makes her very happy.
When she was asked by her employer if she would be interested in a temporary assignment with the 2015 United Way Campaign, she felt honoured. Since being there her knowledge about the community has broadened and she feels like she has been blessed to be able to work with such a devoted team. Her experience has gone above and beyond what she expected. Claudette states, “The executive director along with the full time staff, and the other 4 loan representatives are truly an amazing team. Day in and day out they continue to make our community a better place to live. It is a pleasure to have had the opportunity to meet and work with such dedicated people.”
When asked to describe her experience with the United Way Claudette says, “realizing the commitment and dedication of so many individuals and the impact that they have made in our community is what I have gained, as well as knowing what has been accomplished in the past and how it does make a difference.”
Claudette’s most memorable moment thus far was when her and the other loan representatives volunteered at “Coats For Kids” and had the opportunity to interact with the children, seeing them getting so excited about their new winter attire. And of course afterwards celebrating with hot chocolate and homemade chocolate chip cookies. Claudette states, “the expressions on their faces were worth a million dollars.”
