RDEK on the hunt for outstanding volunteers
If you know an outstanding volunteer in one of the rural areas in the region, the RDEK wants to hear from you.
Nomination forms are now available for the 2013 Electoral Area Volunteer of the Year and, as it has in past years, the Regional District will once again be honouring one outstanding volunteer from each of its six electoral areas.
“Volunteers are the heart of our rural communities,” says RDEK Vice Chair, Wendy Booth. “This is our opportunity to recognize the valuable contribution all volunteers make and pay tribute to six special individuals.”
Nominees must be a resident of an electoral area and make voluntary contributions to the spirit, culture or people of the community.
Nomination forms can be filled out or downloaded from the RDEK website and can also be picked up at the Cranbrook and Columbia Valley RDEK offices, from the Electoral Area Advisory Commissions and various Community Associations.
The deadline for nominations is Monday.
