I was recently the surprised recipient of the Senior Citizen of the Year award, an award sponsored and presented by our local Rotary Club and the City of Penticton.
This was indeed an honour and I thank both the sponsors and those who nominated me.
However, I would like to say to all the many volunteers who have worked with, assisted and supported me in my various community activities, that this award equally belongs to each and every one of you. I am just one of many who endeavour to serve their community, and I could not do what I do without your help.
Thank you Rotarians and City of Penticton for honouring the many volunteers who help to make our community a great place to live.
