Tim Hortons Volunteer of the Month

Carrie Tapson - Town of Wembley FCSS

Carrie TapsonDecember's Tim Hortons Volunteer of the Month Draw Winner is Carrie Tapson! Carrie was nominated for our Volunteers of the Week program, on December 27th by the Town of Wembley FCSS, here’s a look back at Carrie’s nomination:

“The Town of Wembley FCSS nominates Advisory Board member Carrie Tapson. The Town of Wembley FCSS Advisory Board is a group of dedicated individuals who are the decision making body of our community who determine events & activities that take place throughout the year.  Carrie & the group decide on the events & activities but they are HANDS ON and make sure they are a SUCCESS. Our FCSS office is a one person show and without support of the Advisory Board volunteers it would not be able to offer the FANTASTIC community events that the FCSS host such as the Volunteer Appreciation Banquet, Seniors Week Luncheon, Safe Halloween, Seniors & Friends "Sleigh Bell Brunch" and the Community Christmas event "Light the Night".  The Advisory Board also hosts several presentations that address preventative social awareness such as our recent Fentanyl - Understanding the Crisis.”  

For being named Volunteer of the Month Carrie has won a $100 Gift Card from Tim Hortons. Congratulations Carrie!

The staff and board of the GPVSB would like to thank our sponsor Tim Hortons for helping us fuel the volunteers of Grande Prairie.
