The winners humbly accepted their awards. And, I saw proof on social media that the other nominees were pleased to be a part of it. That's nice.
The local Chamber of Commerce along with CAE and CHAB presented Moose Jaw's Citizen & Group of the Year Awards yesterday.
Cory Olafson is our Citizen of the Year. He has given back to his community more than most of us ever will. He's a long time volunteer with the local Kinsmen Club - in fact, he takes the lead on numerous projects. He has also been instrumental in keeping the sport of baseball flourishing in the community.
The Group of the Year went to the 15 Wing Fellowship. This group has become a major player over a few short years. They get together to stage events and direct the proceeds to 15 Wing's Military Family Resource Centre which focuses on enriching the lives of local military families through positive action, education and support.
A special word of THANKS today to all nominees and the winners - you people make our community one of the best places to live.
