Volunteer of the year: Archie Staats

In June the Mill Bay Community League hosted the annual volunteer recognition and appreciation barbecue. Thank-you to everyone who attended this festive event! The accordion was on fire with Alf Carter accompanied by his two sisters and the food was bountiful. The heart of our community is supported by the sweat equity of our local volunteers. Each day we have volunteers supporting our schools, waterworks, fire protection, parks and recreation, healthcare auxiliary, community policing and outreach. A heartfelt thank-you goes out to all of you who support Mill Bay.

Of special note is the Volunteer of 2019 awarded to Archie Staats. We found him working the grill at the BBQ making sure everyone was well fed before he took a break to receive his plaque. Archie is a prolific volunteer in Mill Bay and is involved in countless committees in addition to being the Vice President of the Mill Bay Community League.

The league donated leftover food to the Warmland Shelter in Duncan.
