Glory Przekop: Saskatoon Lake Agricultural Society
Saskatoon Lake Ag. Society would like to thank Glory Przekop and nominate her as volunteer of the week. Glory jumped right in with both feet to sit on our Board of Directors and has taken to task all our media and advertising roles. She is doing an amazing job and we look forward to her newsletters and her amazing sense of humor and winning feedback.
Every action makes a difference. Every hour counts.
The United Nations General Assembly created International Volunteer Day (IVD) in 1985 as an annual celebration of voluntary action for volunteers, volunteer organizations and governments. The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the designated international focal point for IVD, and supports and encourages its worldwide celebration on December 5th each year.
For more information about IVD, please visit the official website at http://www.worldvolunteerweb.org/intl-vol-day.html.
The Grande Prairie Volunteer Services Bureau recognizes the value of this day and honours our community's volunteers through an annual Celebration Breakfast and presentation of the Volunteer of the Year and Corporate Volunteer of the Year Awards.
