Volunteer of the Month

July 2016 Volunteer of the Month - Connie Steigenberger

VOMJulyConnie1Congratulations Connie!

As the winner of the Tim Hortons Volunteer of the Month draw, Connie has won a brand new Tim Hortons Coffee brewer! The staff and board of the GPVSB thank our sponsors at Tim Hortons for helping us fuel the volunteers of Grande Prairie one cup of coffee at a time, or in Connie's case 10 cups of coffee in just 3 mins!

Here's a look back at Connie's Volunteers of the Week nomination from PARDS.

Connie was the volunteer medic for PARDS Fund Ride & Carnival this past June. Over the course of a long hot day Connie was out and about, checking in with both attendees and other volunteers, offering sunscreen and water to be “proactive”, ensuring everyone was safe and healthy. Her participation in the Ride each year makes everyone involved feel safer and sad to say but we are glad she keeps herself busy rather than having to be busy!  In addition, Connie helps out with other fundraising activities throughout the year. Thanks Connie, for all your efforts and time.
