Cranbrook is gearing up to celebrate it’s 2015 Citizen of the Year.
At a monthly meeting in December, Frank Vanden Broek was unveiled as the Citizen of the Year, following a nomination process.
The Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce will honour Vanden Broek at a gala dinner this Friday, Jan 29th at the Heritage Inn and Convention Centre.
“Since moving to Cranbrook in 1986, Frank has been a very active member of many volunteer and community organizations in our community,” said Dave Struthers, the president of the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce. “Frank is incredibly deserving of this honour.”
Vanden Broek is a certified financial planner with Sun Life Financial, who has volunteered for many years with organizations such as Rotary International, the Sunrise Rotary Club and is a past director of the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce.
“This is an exceptional award for an extraordinary citizen,” said Struthers. “If you look at the list of past recipients, its is a who’s who of what makes Cranbrook a great place to live, work and play and we are pleased to add Frank’s name to that list.
The event is open to the public, with cocktails at 6 p.m. and dinner at 7 p.m. with a program to follow.
