DSC_0070This year’s Volunteer Appreciation dinner was held on Dec 9, 2015. With over 50 volunteers looking on Val Wilson was presented with the Spirit of the Volunteer Award in recognition of her hard work on the Website, Library , Archives and the CVAFM Association Board, (stepping in as Secretary for Jean Ennis.)

Val is the unofficial big sister to all of us as she demonstrated recently and has kept us up to date on the progress of Norm Danton, another volunteer here who has been working hard at overcoming the results of a recent illness, with typical British humor, good cheer, and determination.

She has contributed so much to the website and her great ideas have vastly improved the readership of our blog posts and turned them into a great success!

All of this and baking too, our Cupcake Lady is well deserving of the honor of Spirit of the Volunteer!
