The County of Stettler Community Service Awards are slated to be handed down on Feb. 6th.

“The purpose of the Awards is that they allow us to recognize the valuable contributions of all of our volunteers in all the communities within the County of Stettler,” said Lorraine Hankins, director of recreation for the County of Stettler.

The 43rd annual Awards will be held at Erskine IOOF Hall.

Highlights include the Stettler Dodge Community Service Award which is presented to volunteers who have shown outstanding community leadership in recreation, and the ATCO Arts, Culture and Heritage Award which goes to volunteers who have shown outstanding leadership and commitment to the cultural aspects of the community in the area.

Submit nominations to Lorraine Hankins at lhankins@stettlercounty.ca prior to Jan. 20th.

Tickets are also available at the County Administration Building ($20 each).

“It’s a nice evening – we have supper, light entertainment and the awards,” she said. “We rotate around the awards around the different community halls,” she said. “If anyone also wants to be a sponsor of the awards, we are always looking for new sponsors,” she said.
