Six volunteers have been awarded for their contributions to Kaslo Search and Rescue.
The organization partnered with five local companies to put a spotlight on members who help serve the Kaslo area. The winners were:
Robyn and Glen Skobalski: Rally4Life President’s Award
Kevin Connor: Angry Hen Brewing Top Rookie or the year
Chris Cullen: Kaslo Pharmacy Heaviest Backpack award
Jana Poborilova: Stellar Heli Skiing Most Improved Technician
Hayley Walker: Kaslo Building Supplies Most Volunteer Hours
While 2020 was a frenetic pace it appears already as though 2021 is on track to increase the workload for the local volunteer group with five call outs already since Jan. 30.
For volunteers to commit enough time to be trained to the pinnacle of professional discipline is outstanding. Every person involved in the organization plays a critical role in keeping locals and visitors to the region safe when things sometimes don’t work out as planned.
Broader community support comes from Area D, Town of Kaslo, B.C. Community Gaming Grants and Columbia Basin Trust.
Kaslo Search and Rescue would like to thank the local communities and businesses for their support and at the same time to remind you to play safe in our mountain and lake environment. Use the Adventure Smart App to plan and communicate your trip and be prepared for changes in weather.
