The local chapter of the BC and Yukon Cancer Society met on March 22, 2014 and honoured some of their members. Sylvia (Toots) Tuck was given the Community Impact Volunteer Certificate.
The Volunteer Achievement Certificate recognizes the dedication and commitment of volunteers in their area of endeavour and whose contributions have a significant impact on the strategic goals of the Canadian Cancer Society.

We congratulate Sylvia and I’m sure our community has benefited greatly from the mentoring she has done in helping others with cancer. Long time service pins were presented to: Dan Epp: five years, Myrtle Pedersen: five years, Pauline Russell: 20 years and Pat Lenci: 30 years.
