4K Community Cup Winner for October: Sandra Goorbarry!
She’s a code breaker, sandwich maker, don’t mess around with her. (must be read to the tune of Heartbreaker)

There is a very good reason why Sandra Goorbarry is 4Korners selection for the TCRAL volunteer to be honored at International Seniors Day in the Laurentians and why she is this month’s 4K Community Cup winner! When a volunteer can’t quite remember if it’s been 25 or 30 years that they have been giving up their time to help their community, you know this individual has put in some WORK.

Along with an ongoing 27-year stint as Secretary-Treasurer for St Mungo’s United Church in Cushing, QC, Sandra has also been preparing lunch for seniors at the Open Circle program in Harrington for two years. An avid cruciverbalist (a person skillful in creating or solving crossword puzzles), Sandra loves a good puzzle. During the phone call we shared this week she mused that had she lived through the Second World War she would likely have been recruited as one of the code breakers. (Fun fact: some of the British Intelligence agents involved in the code-breaking of Bletchley Park during WW2 were actually recruited through the Daily Telegraph Crossword Puzzle. Can you tell I learned a lot during this phone call?)

While it’s not quite Imitation Game-level code-breaking, part of what Sandra loves about preparing lunches at Open Circle is that she is never quite sure what will be waiting for her in terms of ingredients. It’s a random basket of vegetables with little more than her wits and her trusty spiralizer on hand to pull something together that will please even the most “meat and potatoes” kind of man, and women of course, but we all know men of a certain age… most are unlikely to be thrilled about a beet salad, but spiralize them and apparently you have a winner! I tell Sandra I can relate. I feed a picky 3-year-old and when I watch my mother prepare food for my 71-year-old father… let’s just say there are similarities.

It is not just preparing the lunch that makes Sandra such a valuable asset to Open Circle. The event organizer Melanie Wilson (4Korners Seniors and Caregivers Program Manager) calls Sandra’s ability to make a real connection with the seniors a true art.  Sandra was surprised when I shared this with her, telling me she sees herself as more of a wallflower. It’s a great reminder that how we see ourselves may be different from what others perceive. For the seniors at Open Circle, Sandra is a culinary cruciverbalist and I have no doubt the members are looking forward to when they can share a meal together again.
