A Drumheller man with a long record of service to the community is being honoured for his work with local seniors.
Bill Wulff, who used to work with the town's Corporate Services Department, is nominated for three awards handed out by the Alberta Seniors and Housing Minister. For many years now, Wulff has done seniors and low income tax returns for free and also does financial audits for area seniors centres and lodges.
"There's a lot of people who donate lots of time in this community; I don't donate nearly as much time as they do," he told Drum FM. "What put me into the running was if you put a financial value to my stuff, it has more value, which I don't really appreciate. Just because I do income taxes and that kind of stuff doesn't make me special."
The town's Senior Services Coordinator disagrees.
"I can't think of anyone that deserves it more than Bill," argued Rose Poulson. "He does so much, but certainly for the seniors, with his tax program, we couldn't do it without Bill; he's just been amazing."
"I could not be happier that he's up for this and I really hope he wins," she continued. "I'm really excited to see that he's in the running and certainly deserving of this award."
There are actually three minister's awards for individuals, organizations and seniors who work with other seniors. Wulff is nominated for all three. The winners are expected to be announced in October.
