Electoral Area E Volunteer of the Year Honoured

Stan Yawney has been officially recognized as the 2022 Electoral Area E Volunteer of the Year.

“As the president of the St. Mary Valley Residents Association and a neighbour that is always willing to lend a hand, Stan is a wonderful example of how volunteers are the backbone of our area” says RDEK Electoral Area E Director Jane Walter.

Stan is a remarkable person and always ready to help anyone who needs it. Stan has been the president of the St. Mary Valley Rural Residents Association for many years. Stan is also one of the first people to call for the Fire Suppression Committee in the St. Mary Valley. He is a major asset, making sure all the equipment is accounted for in the spring and ready to go at a moment’s notice. In the fall, he checks to make sure all the equipment is accounted for again. He is very giving of himself and never expects anything in return. Stan is a wonderful neighbour to everyone and deserves to be recognized as the Volunteer of the Year for 2022.

Director Walter formally recognized Yawney at a fire suppression demonstration and picnic put on by the St. Mary Valley Residents Association on June 17, 2022.
