Each December, the Government of Alberta recognizes two youth, two adults, and two seniors who play a vital role in volunteering for their respective communities.
St. Paul FCSS requested that council approve the nomination of Sue demoissac for the award, which they did unanimously.
“Sue works tirelessly, harder than almost anyone I know, with the FCSS and so many other groups in town,” said Mayor Maureen Miller. “I can’t think of a better nominee for this award, and I’m sure she’ll be honoured to learn that her name was put forward.”
According to the Government of Alberta website, “The Stars of Alberta Volunteer Awards recognize extraordinary Albertans whose volunteer efforts have contributed to the well-being of their community and fellow community members.”
Criteria for the Stars of Alberta Volunteer Awards includes those who:
• Exemplify the spirit of community service.
• Demonstrate exemplary initiative, leadership, and creativity in their service to others;
• Serve as a role model for others in their community;
• Inspire others to engage in volunteer service; and
• Improve the overall quality of life of fellow Albertans and the community as a whole.
The awards are presented around International Volunteer Day (December 5) each year.
