The Community Development Corporation is launching a new program to promote volunteerism in our community. Revelstoke has a strong history of volunteerism, contributing not only to the ‘hidden’ economy but also to the vitality and spirit that makes our community “the friendly, happening place we all know and love,” it said in a news release.
“The Spirit of Revelstoke award program recognizes citizens who have made outstanding volunteer contributions to our community,” the release said.
“Award recipients will be honoured with a personal letter from the Mayor of Revelstoke and a small token of appreciation. Names of recipients will be published in local media and entered into a draw to win a Spirit of Revelstoke print designed by local artist Rob Buchanan. The names of nominators will remain confidential.”
The volunteer nominated can be any age and his or her contribution must be significant:
- Having occurred on a regular basis over time (i.e. shoveling a neighbour’s driveway all winter), or
- Related to a community organization, or
- Having made a major impact on a specific project that will benefit the community at large.
Nomination forms can also be picked up at Chamber of Commerce reception (204 Campbell Ave) or requested via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
