Erin Litchfield nominates Taryn Carell for Tim Hortons Volunteers of the Week! Erin wrote ‘Taryn Carrell is an extraordinary woman who puts her heart and soul into all she does and the people she interacts with. Just one of the many areas Taryn volunteers in has been the gingerbread houses at the Festival of Trees. She has been involved with these since 2002! She dedicates hours upon hours as well as bringing the great excitement and opportunity of building gingerbread houses into her Kindergarten classroom. Taryn is not one to brag or need the limelight, but I feel she needs to be recognized for all she has done and continues to do in relation to the gingerbread houses.’
