The Electoral Area E Volunteers of the Year were recognized at the Area E Town Hall Meeting in Wasa Wednesday night.

Hugh and Orlena Campbell work tirelessly in and around the Wasa area and contribute significantly to the success of the community.

“Volunteers truly define the character of our rural communities. We are so lucky in Area E that we have so many dedicated volunteers who give tirelessly to support their friends and neighbours,” said Area E Director Jane Walter.

“Hugh and Orlena are two of those hardworking volunteers and it was an honour to be able to pay tribute to them and to thank them for their dedication and kindness.”

The Campbells are involved extensively with the Wasa Lions Club assisting with pancake breakfasts or maintaining the Lions Trail.

They have run the community bingo for several years; volunteer with Wasa Fun Days; and purchase and prepare all the food for the Lions Club Supper and Dance.

The second part of the Town Hall Meeting featured presentations on the 5-Year Financial Plan, Wasa/Ta Ta Creek/Skookumchuck Mosquito Control Program and Invasive Plant Management.

The next RDEK Town Hall Meeting will be held Monday, September 30 in Wardner.

It will be the first of three Electoral Area C Meetings to be held over the next two weeks.
