Jim Kirkwood – Building Communities One Brownie at a Time

Every Thursday morning, Jim Kirkwood makes his way through UFA’s Calgary Support Office , hand delivering hundreds of baked goods to his co-workers. While his formal title is Buyer, Special Projects, Agribusiness, most people know him as the gentle man who keeps us in sugary sweet bliss week after week.  In addition to his delightful treats, Kirkwood also does all of the baking for the Coffee with Carol sessions. We have all marvelled at how much time this must take and we think that he must bake around the clock in order to have it ready every Thursday, without fail.

Little did we know that it’s not just us who are the recipients of his generosity.

We recently learned that Kirkwood has received a very prestigious award. The Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL) and Viterra recognize volunteers from each member team through the Viterra AJHL Volunteer Profile.   At the end of the regular season, one volunteer in both the Viterra AJHL North Division and the Viterra AJHL South Division are presented with the Viterra Salute to Service Award recognizing their service and commitment to the AJHL. Kirkwood was this year’s South Division award recipient.
