LETTER: Local volunteers to be recognized

AHCS hosting luncheon to honour 100+ volunteers

Editor:

The Agassiz-Harrison Community Services Society (AHCS) is very pleased to be hosting a special luncheon for our 100-plus AHCS community volunteers on Monday, April 16 at the Agassiz Legion.

The event is taking place during the National Volunteer Appreciation Week and we are anticipating a great turnout this year.

We are also very excited that our local businesses have given generously towards our door prizes to help make this event even more special.

Our AHCS volunteers give selflessly of their time and efforts throughout the year, day in and day out, to help make this community one we can continue to be proud of, and we are happy to be able to recognize this group of people in this small way.

As a newcomer at Agassiz-Harrison Community Services, I am learning more each day about what goes on “behind the scenes” to achieve what appears to be a seamless operation at our various locations and in all our programs – from the Family Parenting Place to the Valley Youth Centre, Food Bank, Drive4U, Literacy Program, and the Thrift Store.

All of these services and programs depend on the contributions and support of our wonderful volunteers.

I feel very fortunate to be part of such a vibrant and generous community, and I am very thankful for all of our AHCS volunteers who are able to help out when and where they are needed. Please accept our sincere thanks and gratitude.

So, be sure to thank the volunteers that you see out volunteering in our community.

National Volunteer Appreciation week is from April 15 to 21.

– Sue Adams, Office Manager
