Morinville – The Community cultural Centre was packed Friday night with hundreds of community-minded individuals who gathered together to recognize those of their number who were presented with achievement awards and to be recognized collectively for their volunteerism.
The 25th Annual Volunteer Appreciation Evening was hosted by Councillors Lisa Holmes and Nicole Boutestein, who introduced each of the awards and performers. Volunteers were entertained by a one-woman theatrical performance by Maureen Rooney and the music of the Fuzz Brothers (Allan Pangburn and Justin Perkins).
Additional awards included a Silent Hero award, Mayor’s Choice Award, Leader of the Year and a Legacy Award.
