Community leaders volunteer to make a difference


With the start of a new year underway, the RVH Foundation welcomes two new volunteers to our Board of Directors. Greg MacKenzie, owner of Mack MacKenzie Motors, and Kim Sterling, owner of Sterling’s No Frills, are community leaders who have a passion for our local hospital.

“They are a valued and welcomed addition, and I am proud and honoured to welcome each of them to the Foundation Board,” stated Jim Lemenchick, Foundation Chair.

MacKenzie and Sterling both have longstanding ties to Renfrew Victoria Hospital.

“The MacKenzie family is a long-time supporter of RVH going back to founder Mack MacKenzie, and Kim’s father (Bill Kennery) was a former chair of the hospital board who I am sure would be proud to see his daughter involved in a cause that was dear to him,” notes Lemenchick.

Sterling says she is honoured to be invited to join the board.

“With my kids now grown and living away from home, I have the time to contribute to my community. My dad’s membership on the RVH Board of Directors years ago has always been a source of pride for me, and I’m proud and excited at the  opportunity to continue that legacy. I look forward to learning more about the Foundation and contributing to its continued growth supporting the first-class medical services offered at RVH.”

“When asked if I would sit on the board, I was honoured. I saw it as an opportunity for me to continue to give to the hospital as my family has done for years,” agreed Greg MacKenzie.

Along with the two new members, the 2018/19 Board of Directors includes Jim Lemenchick (Chair), Lorna Finner, Keanan Stone, Sheila Kemp, Tom Kubiseski, Neil MacAskill, Randy Penney and Barb Symington.
