Nominees are being sought for a new Community Futures program that recognizes the contribution of volunteers in Revelstoke.

The Spirit of Revelstoke Award program recognizes citizens who have made outstanding volunteer contributions to the community of Revelstoke.

The program was launched to help promote volunteerism in Revelstoke.

“Revelstoke has a strong history of volunteerism, contributing not only to the ‘hidden’ economy but also to the vitality and spirit that makes our community the friendly, happening place we all know and love,” states the press release announcing the award.

Award recipients will be given a personal letter from Mayor David Raven and a small token of appreciation. They will also be entered into a draw to win a Spirit of Revelstoke print designed by artist Rob Buchanan.

Nominees can be of any age. The criteria states, ”The volunteer contribution must be significant:

– Having occurred on a regular basis over time (ie. shoveling a neighbour’s driveway all winter), or

– Related to a community organization, or

– Having made a major impact on a specific project that will benefit the community at large.”

Nomination forms can be picked up at the Chamber of Commerce office at 204 Campbell Ave. or by emailing
