Volunteers received praise at a Cranbrook golf course over the weekend.
With the 55+ BC Games wrapped up, the staff at Shadow Mountain Golf threw a Volunteer appreciation day.
Director of client services and marketing Brenda Lee Owe, says the event was their way of giving back to volunteers in the community.
“We had the search and rescue folks, who had to work so hard in regards to the fires,” Lee Owe says. “And then the 55+ Games, the volunteers worked very hard. So Shadow Mountain thought, it was our turn to do a little bit of giving.
Volunteers from the games and search and rescue personnel got to take in the day of free golf.
The course gave out 58 free rounds which amounts to nearly $4,300.
