Rotarian Gerry Raymond recently reported to our Club that about 100 Intouch emergency response units are currently in use in our community and since 1990 over 600 units had been installed by Windsor Rotary volunteers. What Gerry didn't say was that “our community” stretches from Mount Uniacke to Noel to Hantsport and that he has been installing and maintaining these units for an amazing 23 years! During this time his team has included Rotarians Darryl Sullivan and the late Bill Mulhall and now includes Larry Armstrong and Pat Gould-Thorpe. Two Rotarians usually go together when a unit is being installed but Gerry likes to do the maintenance himself. About twice a week he is called on to change batteries or swap out units that are not working properly. “Geneva and I like to get in the car and go for a drive,” says Gerry, “so we combine volunteer work with a little community tour.”
