School is about to begin in Montpelier and this group of volunteers is getting ready. On Tuesday, thirteen volunteers from the Montpelier Community of Faith participated in American Heart Association CPR/AED training at Bryan Hospital.
The training was put on by Dee Cox, Marilyn Frank, Michelle Chester, Marjorie Buell & Mary Dominique who are staff of Community Hospitals & Wellness Center’s (CHWC) Bryan Hospital. The class was offered to volunteers and supporters ofMontpelier Community of Faith and was provided free of charge by CHWC. Dinner at Bryan Hospital’s excellent dining facility was also provided free of charge with the assistance of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Montpelier.
“We appreciate the effort and enthusiasm of all of our volunteers,” explained Chris Kannel, the group’s spokesman. “We put this event together to demonstrate our appreciation and to add value to the work that these volunteers are already doing.”
Those in attendance completed training to become “CPR Certified”. “We hope that this training will help our volunteers to feel more confident in their roles – better prepared to handle a few of the situations that may arise,” Mr. Kannel added. Volunteers with the group act as monitors at two of the community’s bus stops and as aids in the cafeteria at the school-supplied breakfast.
