There are hundreds of volunteers throughout our community and one has been recognized throughout Alberta.
Mike Todor has been volunteering with groups and individuals for years. He sits on many committees and has provided valuable input into many subjects that involve the betterment of Drumheller.
Todor was nominated for the Star of Alberta Award earlier this year and although he wasn't chosen, he is honored to have been recognized by his peers, locally and provincially,
"It says here in the letter, that it's for my dedication in making Drumheller a welcoming community through my involvement in many organizations including Dino-Arts, Heritage Arts and Culture Committee, Badlands Gallery, the Chamber of Commerce Advocacy Committee and economic development," explained Todor as he recited the note from the letter he received from the Star of Alberta committee.
Todor was presented the 2018 Stars of Alberta Awards Certificate of Recognition from town council at Monday's regular town council meeting.
"It's wonderful to see one of our community members recognized for all the efforts that are put in to help make this (Drumheller) a better place," said Drumheller Mayor, Heather Colberg. "He's not paid on any of these committees he sits on and he sits on numerous ones. His passion is to make the boards that he does sit on move forward."
Colberg also recognizes the hundreds of other townspeople that volunteer their time and comments that Drumheller wouldn't be the same without any one of them.
"I still have some committee work to do until next September/October," said Todor as he looks to the future. "After that, I'll take some time off just for me and then we will see."
