Time to nominate the volunteer of the year


You know who they are. They work in your church or volunteer at the school. Maybe he or she picks up litter every week along the highway, or is the one who can always be counted on to shovel a sidewalk when someone else can’t. Or maybe it’s someone who volunteers on a board or commission or city council, putting in countless hours on behalf of the community.

The Star will honor the 2016 volunteer of the year in an upcoming issue and will publish your letters of nomination between now and then. We encourage you to think about those who give of their time and energy for the good of others, and to send in a letter about those good deeds as soon as possible.

Include details about their efforts, your contact information, and names of other people to contact about your nominee.

Nominations can be:

• dropped off at The Star, 3 Midway Ave. in Grand Coulee,

• mailed to Volunteer, P.O. Box 150, Grand Coulee, 99133, or

• emailed to
