Many volunteers are worthy of honor


The guy who’s always helping out the neighbors, the member of your club or church who helps with just about everything, the member of the volunteer board or council who puts in countless hours on behalf citizens who often don’t know who makes local decisions on their behalf.

These are all examples of folks you could nominate for the 2016 volunteer of the year to be honored in an upcoming issue of The Star.

The newspaper 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, PO. Box 150, Grand Coulee, 99133 or

• emailed to
