By Emily Jaycox For the Independent

The County of Stettler will hold its 42nd annual community service awards at Linda Hall on Thursday, Feb. 21, starting at 6 p.m.

“This is a great event that honors the dedication and commitments given by all of our volunteers in the County of Stettler,” said Lorraine Hankins, director of recreation, in an email.

“We are in our 42nd year and will continue to celebrate our volunteers for as long as we can.”

The event usually has 150 to 160 people in attendance and all are welcome, says Hankins.

80 tickets have already been sold and more are still available.

Tickets are $20 each and are available at the county administration building.

The evening starts with cocktails at 6 p.m. and will include light entertainment, supper and the awards presentation.

This event recognizes outstanding volunteers that contribute to recreation within Stettler County.

Awards are also given to youth that go above and beyond to improve their community.

There are 10 awards, including the two major awards: the Stettler Dodge Community Service Award and the ATCO Cultural, Arts and Heritage Award.

The Stettler Dodge Award is given to volunteers that have shown outstanding community leadership in recreation.

“All nominees for the award are considered to be hard-working, community-minded people who have contributed greatly to the recreation of a community.”

The ATCO award is given to volunteers that have demonstrated outstanding leadership and commitment to culture in the community.

“These volunteers have spent countless hours teaching, coaching, leading and educating the community in the various aspects of arts and culture.”

Nominations are accepted throughout the year and winners are decided by a selection committee of the Regional Recreation Board members.

The award winners have not been announced yet.

“For some of them it may be of a surprise, while others (have been) made aware of it.”
