My name is Arthur Hills. I have been volunteering for quite a while in various ways. One of the things I have realized is that I have always liked to help people. I did that in my work because I was a computer support person for Macintosh computers. I was always helping people solve problems especially with Microsoft. Since I’ve retired, I’ve done volunteer work in completely different areas than which I did when I was working. I’ve been involved in the local church, the regional church called Waterloo Presbytery and the National at Hamilton Conference and General Council.
I get the most enjoyment out of working at the Bridgeport Café. From the honesty of the people we deal with, the appreciation they give to us.
Especially when I can make my turkey bone soup. It’s a soup made up from leftover turkeys. Just the bones and the meat left on them. Then we add the kitchen sink to it. It is a very nice soup. I have a few little tricks. It’s one thing I really do enjoy. I am making soup almost every day and what we have is whatever we make ourselves or we get from the Foodbank of Waterloo Region. They always have some food leftover, and we put that into a soup.
You will be surprised how much that is enjoyed. That gives me a lot of satisfaction.
