Each year Grand Forks citizens take the time to nominate our hard-working volunteers for recognition. 

Last night, at the City of Grand Forks volunteer appreciation event, six groups and individuals stepped up to the podium to be thanked for their tireless efforts that otherwise go unnoticed.

Erna Gobbet, arts and culture organizer; Cody Harp, youth who has been active with the Border Bruins; Joan Thompson, musical director were the individuals nominated by the community. Organizations included: the Royal Canadian Legion, Grand Forks Fire Rescue and the Boundary Woodworkers Guild.

Les Johnson, of GFTV, was on hand to film the event. Watch the video to hear why these people have made a difference in their community!
