Caught in the Act

Ken Nash - The Community Village

by Tanya Ruigrok, GPVSB Communications


Ken Nash is a busy man with an active lifestyle.  For 36 years he worked in waste management, a challenging job where he was very busy all day long.  “When I retired” he says, “I suddenly found myself with nothing to do – my self worth started to decline. I came to The Community Village to see if they could use some help and found out they needed LOTS of help.”
