Do you know someone living in the rural areas of the East Kootenay who is an outstanding volunteer?
If so you might want to nominate them for the RDEK 2023 Volunteer of the Year award.
Nominations are now open and forms can be downloaded at engage.rdek.bc.ca/volunteer or you can pick them up at the Cranbrook office or the office in Columbia Valley.
“This is an important recognition program for us,” said RDEK Board Chair Rob Gay “At a time when volunteering is seeing lower turnout numbers, it’s imperative to say to those that continually show up, that we see them, and we appreciate them.
”It’s often those who ask for no recognition the deserve it theist, so celebrating those chosen is such a privilege every year.”
The deadline for nominations is February 1, 2023.
