2018 Celebrating Seniors
Mr. Lorne Calvert
Celebrating Seniors Volunteer Awards was initiated to recognize and honour outstanding senior volunteers in Saskatchewan. SSM was excited to honour the 2018 Celebrating Seniors Volunteer Awards nominees and award recipients at the annual awards banquet on Sept 30, 2018 at the Conexus Arts Centre in Regina. We want to thank all of these volunteers for the contributions they make to their respective communities across Saskatchewan. The evening was a showcase of the many older adults whose contributions are invaluable as they give of themselves to better the quality of life for others.
Also a big thank you to our sponsors. Without them it would be impossible to host this prestigious evening!
