Appreciation night to recognize Hockeyville volunteers

The Town of Sylvan Lake will show its gratitude to Sylvan Lake’s Kraft Hockeyville volunteers during an appreciation night

The Town of Sylvan Lake will show its gratitude to Sylvan Lake’s Kraft Hockeyville volunteers during an appreciation night at the Municipal Government Building Jan. 22.

Town council gave the green light for the event during Monday night’s regular meeting. The idea was put forth by Mayor Sean McIntyre as a way of formally thanking Hockeyville committee members for their hard work on the Hockeyville campaign over the last year.

Hockeyville, he said, was one of two major initiatives that “pulled our community together” in recent years; the other being the town’s Centennial celebrations.

He felt it was only appropriate to acknowledge Hockeyville committee members in the same way as the Centennial’s volunteers were acknowledged.

The event will be open to Hockeyville’s “core team of volunteers” and their significant others, he said, and will offer them appetizers, and see them presented a display that will likely end up in the NexSource Centre upon its completion.

Volunteers will also be presented a CAEP (Central Alberta Economic Partnership) volunteerism award that was recently received by the Town.

Coun. Graham Parsons, who chaired the Hockeyville organizing committee, said plans were being made for a separate event to show appreciation for the hundreds of volunteers outside the committee who also helped.
