It was another successful Volunteer Appreciation week in the Town of Edson.

Last week, the Town of Edson celebrated its volunteers with the annual Volunteer Appreciation Supper. Over 120 residents took part, including Yellowhead MP Jim Eglinski and West Yellowhead MLA, the Honourable Robin Campbell, Minister of Finance. The Town of Edson hosts this event each year to celebrate the great work volunteers do throughout the community.

This year six Town of Edson Firefighters, including Edson’s Mayor, were honoured as Minister Campbell presented them with their Alberta Emergency Services Medal for 12 years of exemplary service. Those Firefighters were Greg Pasychny, Ryan Rupert, Mark Rupert, James McMorran, Alma Iwanciwski, and Ryan Palkun.

The Town of Edson thanks all volunteers for all that they do to make our community a better place.
