If you know someone who goes above and beyond to make Tofino a better place, now’s the time to sing their praises.
“Volunteers use their passion, knowledge, and experience to contribute to services and activities that make communities like Tofino better places to live. I know that volunteers don’t do what they do to get recognition or any kind of compensation, but Tofino Council still feels it is important to say thank you, and to go a little farther in our recognition of those individuals who really go above and beyond in their service,” said Tofino mayor Josie Osborne.
“I hope that Tofitians can think about the events, activities, and services that they benefit from, then think about the people behind the scenes that make those things happen. Maybe there’s a friend or a colleague that really stands out as someone who’s contributed a lot, is a terrific role model, and deserves recognition. Those are the kinds of nominations we want to encourage.”
Tofino hopes to recognize four to six locals this year and nominations can be sent to email@example.com. The deadline for nominations is Tuesday, Oct. 31, at 4 p.m.
