The Northumberland community is losing a dear friend as Mary Anne Rowlands and her husband, Doug, leave today for retirement to the East Coast. In addition to the great work that Mary Anne accomplished while she was an Outreach Worker with Green Wood, she managed The Help Centre in Cobourg for a dozen years, endearing herself to many people who found themselves struggling with poverty and disability.
Mary Anne brought compassion and understanding to these roles that went far beyond typical job expectations. She will be greatly missed by this community, but we wish her and Doug our best as they embark on a new adventure. Thank you, Mary Anne.
