On Nov. 5, area resident Val Stamer was presented with the Canadian Cancer Society’s Divisional Volunteer Award of Excellence at a Barriere Cancer Society meeting at the Ridge. The award was presented by Sally Ginter, Regional Director of the Canadian Cancer Society, Southern Interior Region.
“There is no other cause that is dearer to Val’s heart than the commitment to the prevention and eradication of cancer in our lives,” said Ginter, “Val and her family contribute time, money, and enormous amounts of energy to the commitment of the Canadian Cancer Society values, missions, and objectives. Val brings energy to our region of the Canadian Cancer Society – she engages not only her family, but her community as well. She carries out initiatives without hesitation, and puts her heart and soul into the work that we do with the Canadian Cancer Society. Val brings honour, love, and dedication to the face of the Canadian Cancer Society.
The Divisional Volunteer Award of Excellence recognizes volunteer dedication, commitment and contributions making significant impact on CCS strategic goals.
