Slocan Valley Community Legacy Society to Host Volunteer Recognition Event in April

April 16, 2016 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Winlaw Hall
Slocan Valley Community Legacy Society

From serving meals, to holding hands, to creating budgets, to coaching kids, to hosting meetings and writing press releases – volunteers keep our communities functioning. They do it without a pay cheque, coming in early to set up chairs and staying late to sweep the floor. They are the lifeblood of the many and diverse non-profit organizations that serve the Slocan Valley. This spring, some of those hard-working volunteers will have a chance to be recognized for their contributions at a special event hosted by the Slocan Valley Community Legacy Society. The event is taking place on Saturday, April 16th, the final day of National Volunteer Week 2016.

The event is called “Get Your Just Desserts” and it will include refreshments, entertainment and door prizes. The good news is that this is not a fundraiser, it is an appreciation event and there is no charge to participants! Non-profit groups throughout the valley are invited to send up to five of their most dedicated volunteers. Funding for the evening is being provided in part by CBT and RDCK Area H Director Walter Popoff.

So, if you belong to one of those groups, from firefighters to parent advisory councils, from trail maintainers to grant writers, or if you are one of “those” people, mark your calendars for April 16 and start thinking about who should attend. Don’t worry … you won’t have to set up a single chair.
