I would like to take this opportunity to nominate George Kohout as volunteer of the year.
We are not members of the Ridge Riders, but we appreciate what George has done for the entire community. He has brought the Ridge Riders from the brink of extinction to a very vibrant and forward looking organization that contributes substantially to the community.
He organized the recognition dinner for Shane Proctor that raised thousands of dollars for the Ridge Riders and Colorama Rodeo. He followed that up with securing advertising for the Ridge Rider events from Coors Brewery. On top of that, he was instrumental in organizing a number of “Bull O Rama” events throughout the summer.
My hat is off to George and his ability to bring together a very impressive working group for the Ridge Riders. On top of that, he had bypass surgery at the end of the summer. Congratulations George.
