The nomination deadline is approaching for the RDEK’s Electoral Area Volunteer of the Year Awards and there is still time to nominate an outstanding volunteer.

“It’s really important to us to be able to recognize the volunteers who make such a big difference in our rural communities and I encourage anyone who knows a special volunteer to consider nominating them,” says RDEK Communications Manager Loree Duczek. “The nomination process is very simple. Forms can be done on line, mailed or faxed, or dropped off.”

Nominees must be a resident of an Electoral Area and make voluntary contributions to the spirit, culture or people of the community.

Nomination forms are available on the RDEK website (www.rdek.bc.ca), at the Cranbrook and Columbia Valley RDEK offices, from the Electoral Area Advisory Commissions and various Community Associations.

The deadline for nominations is February 27, 2014.
