HUDSON’S HOPE, B.C. — The District of Hudson’s Hope has named their volunteer of the year.
Awards were presented earlier this week at Beattie Park as part of the farmers’ market customer appreciation day.
Penelope Mercereau received the Youth Volunteer of the Year for her work with the Hudson’s Hope Figure Skating Club.
Yvonne Moritz received the Adult Volunteer of the Year award for her work organizing the Hudson’s Hope Rodeo and the Peace Region Hockey Tournament.
