RDEK on the hunt for volunteer nominations

If you know an outstanding volunteer in one of the rural areas in the region, the RDEK wants to hear from you.

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 2016 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.

“Our Volunteer  of  the Year  program  recognizes an  individual  or  couple  from  each  of  our Electoral Areas and gives us the opportunity to pay tribute to them and to all the volunteers who give selflessly to contribute to the spirit, culture and people of their communities,” said RDEK Board Chair, Rob Gay.

Nominees must be a resident of an Electoral Area and make voluntary contributions to their community.

Nomination forms can be filled out or downloaded from the RDEK website, Rdek.bc.ca, and can also be picked up at the Cranbrook and Columbia Valley RDEK offices, and from the Electoral Area Advisory Commissions.

The deadline for nominations is Jan. 26, 2016.
