A community can't happen without those who work and don't ask for anything in return.
Volunteer Appreciation Night will be held at the Badlands Community Facility on Tuesday, April 25 and they're still a few spots left.
"I think I have about 10 or so more spots left. We're very close to our maximum, so if they haven't gotten their names in they really need to get them in. I have spoken with the caterer, so he knows how many to set up for. Once those beans are in the pot, that's it," stated Judy -Quintin-Arvidson of the town's Community Services Department.
The evening is going to be full of entertainment and a fantastic meal from Bernie and the Boys.
"It's going to be fantastic, we have a wonderful dessert and a wonderful entertainment group called HOJA. If you've never seen them they're quite interactive and they do all their music by vocal sounds, so like beat boxing and all those things. They really interact with the people and they're a ton a fun, so it's going to be a great night. There's going to be some super door prizes too," outlined Quintin-Arvidson.
Quintin-Arvidson expressed that they try to get the message out to volunteers every year on how grateful the town, and it's residents, are.
"I think volunteers are such giving people that I don't think they realize how much we appreciate what they do. It's really important for us to take a step back and say 'look you guys, you need to pat yourself on the back because no community happens without volunteers'."
