Bev Wiege received the award for Citizen of the Year from past winner Vivian Mitchell at the weekly Rotary Club lunch last week.

“Pretty weird,” she said when asked how she feels about the honour. “I, as a volunteer, do what I want to do because I want to, and I think most volunteers do that to. It’s an honour and that’s wonderful.”

What does Wiege do? She volunteers with the Order of the Eastern Star, United Church, Thrift Store, Meals on Wheels, and does a lot of work with seniors.

Terry Crane, who ran the selection committee for the Revelstoke Rotary Club, said Wiege received the most nominations out of anyone.
