Aw shucks. Who me? I haven't really done anything special.
This is what many young people say when they are nominated for Connecting Youth's annual volunteer recognition award.
In truth, they have given countless hours of volunteer time to support youth and families in the towns of Charlotte, Hinesburg, Shelburne, St. George and Williston. On Nov. 8 the Champlain Valley Union High School Band Room will be transformed into a place for honoring these unsung heroes from our communities.
Join us at 7 pm as we present awards to the 2010 recipients: Jeff Nick, Jim Kay, Steve Cote, Chris McCuin, Ted McKnight, Linda Poirier, Josh Flore, Jill Lowrey, Debbie Seaton, Gennifer Noble and Lantman's Best Yet Market. Light refreshments will be provided. A special "thanks" to Chef's Corner for their contribution to the evening. There will be an opportunity for anyone interested to make a contribution to CY in honor of each award recipient.
CY - Connecting Youth is a community based organization whose mission is to promote a culture that develops in our youth the power and conviction to make healthy choices. CY's primary purpose is to encourage a "no-use" community norm around alcohol, tobacco, and drug use by young people.
