Upcoming Events

National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week


April 10th to the 16th is National Volunteer Week. On behalf of everyone from Community Living Guelph Wellington, I would like to take this opportunity to say a sincere thank you to all of our hard working volunteers. You are a dedicated group of individuals that do so much, but ask for so little in return. We are very lucky to have all of you.


At Community Living Guelph Wellington we are fortunate enough to have over 100 volunteers that give their time and help in many different ways. We have people who work one to one with the people we support; others are on the Board of Directors, or serve on different committees; we have E-Buddies, Friendship group leaders, pet therapy volunteers, ARC Open House volunteers, gardening and horticulture volunteers, Sunset Club volunteers, Christmas music program volunteers, bike riding volunteers, track and field volunteers, and University of Guelph students who help with the Best Buddies program.


Community Living Guelph Wellington hosts a number of events throughout the year. The success of our Fashion Show, The Poor Boys Lunch, The Norm Jary golf tournament, and many other important and fun events are largely dependent on the time our volunteers give.


While we acknowledge all your hard work during this National Volunteer Week, please know that everything you do, and your continued dedication to CLGW is sincerely appreciated all year round.


“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” ~Anne Frank

Bob Butella

Effective December 1, Bob Butella will be leaving CLGW. Bob has accepted a position
at Sunbeam in Kitchener.

Bob joined CLGW in 1997. I am not sure if at that particular time he started thinking about what legacy he would eventually leave behind. Leaving a legacy is about the significance of our talents and our passion. Bob has always been challenged to balance the bottom line as mandated by the ministry but also within that framework balance creativity with practicality and to strive to instill ownership in every individual at CLGW.Leadership also brings with it a responsibility to do something of significance that makes families, communities, work organizations, and the world a better place than it is today.

During his time with us Bob has provided strong leadership and commitment. He has always taken the time to listen to those who we support and understand the world through their eyes. This is quite obvious as you follow Bob through his day to day activities and watch his interactions with those who we support. His ability to connect is one of his many strengths. During my time working with him I have found him to be a values led person, uncompromising on those strong values. We have been extremely fortunate to have been the beneficiary of his leadership for 18 years. Bob we will miss you! You certainly have left a strong legacy behind.
