Every year, we celebrate members of the PHRI family who have reached 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years of contributions to PHRI. As one of this year’s celebrants says, ““Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” We are lucky at PHRI to do work that leads to people living longer and better lives, around the world.

Usually we have a lovely luncheon to go with the awards handed out, but since we cannot do that this year, we are instead donating to Wesley, one of the region’s longest standing non-profits, to provide hot meals and Christmas hampers to our vulnerable and marginalized neighbours in Hamilton, Halton and Brantford.
