Volunteers very appreciated in Nakusp

The well-attended annual Nakusp Volunteer Appreciation Tea honoured many caring and devoted men and women.

The well-attended annual Volunteer Appreciation Tea set to honour the many caring and devoted men and women who give freely of their time and talent benefitting residents of Nakusp’s community care facilities Halcyon House and Minto House took place recently at Halcyon.

Heartfelt messages of thanks and appreciation were delivered to all those in attendance, on behalf of the Village Council and people of Nakusp by Mayor Karen Hamling, Halcyon House operations manager Karolina Moskal (by proxy) and also Arrow and Slocan Lakes Community Services Society’s board chair Kathy Bone.

Each emphasized the importance of the role played by volunteers, who do much to  enhance continuing high quality programs and services made available to senior residents through these valuable supported community living organizations.

These resources have to a significant  extent since their original formation been made possible and partially maintained through the countless efforts of their volunteer supporters.
