Meet Laurie Jasiuk
Volunteer Co-ordinator for the Orangeville Blues & Jazz Festival
Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Orangeville Blues & Jazz Festival. No one knows this better than Laurie Jasiuk, who recruits and manages the festival's team of volunteers. It’s a big job - over 2,500 volunteer hours are required - but as a past volunteer herself, she knows how rewarding it can be to contribute time and energy to your community.
"Orangeville is warm, inviting, caring, fun-loving, joyful, creative, and industrious. I moved here from Toronto 20+ years ago and I was welcomed with open arms. Over the years, that warm feeling continues to grow and deepen. It’s the best of home, it’s the best of community."
