Now Playing What just played?



The Grande Prairie Volunteer Service Bureau invites all community members to join us to celebrate National Volunteer Week this year on Thursday, April 11th with their Annual Appreciation Luncheon featuring the Leaders of Tomorrow Awards, presented by ATCO, at Revolution Place – Bowes Family Garden. Doors for this event will open at 11:30 am. Tickets are only 25 dollars per person and are available to purchase at the Grande Prairie Volunteer Services Bureau office. Don’t miss this amazing event that is the perfect way to say thank you to volunteers and celebrate the positive impact volunteerism has on our community.

The Luncheon features the prestigious Leaders of Tomorrow Awards presented by ATCO, honouring outstanding young Leaders (13-18 years old), in Grande Prairie and the surrounding area, who have made spectacular contributions to their communities through volunteerism. By recognizing these exceptional volunteers, the Leaders of Tomorrow Awards hope to inspire other youths to give selflessly and become lifelong volunteers. Each award recipient will receive a Leaders of Tomorrow Awards trophy, a certificate, a cash award of $100, and a $100 donation to the charity of their choice.

This year’s theme is Sustainability, with this in mind they ask atendees to help them reduce waste by bringing your own plates, utensils and cups. The Luncheon will have amazing door prizes to be won, a great meal to enjoy and more. They will also have special guest speaker Rob Hamaliuk, P.Eng, MBA who is the Executive Director of the Policy Branch Alberta Climate Change Office - Environment and Parks. Mr. Hamaliuk’s atendance is subject to if an election is called during the upcoming weeks.

The GPVSB staff and board would like to thank ATCO for their continued support of the Leader of Tomorrow Awards. They would also like to thanks this year’s sponsors: Volunteer Alberta; The Lions Club of Grande Prairie; Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce; Prairie Disposal Ltd.; Canfor; FCSS Central Peace; FCSS Green View; Town of Wembley; Swan City Rotary Club of GP; and the Town of Beaverlodge.
