Drumheller's Fran Nargang went to her mailbox earlier this month and found an envelope from Senator Doug Black, an Alberta Senator in the federal government.

To her surprise, it was an award from the Senate, the Senators Contribution Award for Community Contributions.

This award was given to two nominated individuals from each community in Alberta who make important volunteer contributions to their community.

Nargang was quite amazed she was nominated and received the award. 

She has no idea who nominated her or how she won. "I would sure like to find out how I did," stated Nargang.

"It makes me feel really good about it," Fran remarked "Thank you very much for whoever did this to me."

Fran and her husband Garry have done fundraisers for STARS for many years.

There were 219 outstanding Albertans recognized with this award, including two in Drumheller and two in Starland County.

They are Fran Nargang and Donna Thomas of Drumheller, as well as Elson McDougald and Ross Rawlusyk of Starland County.
