SASKATCHEWAN HOUSING CORPORATION HONOURS VOLUNTEERS
A luncheon honouring 15 Saskatchewan volunteers for more than a quarter century of service to their local housing authority will be held today in Regina.
"Giving freely of one's energy, time, enthusiasm and talents is truly a special calling," Social Services Minister and Minister responsible for Saskatchewan Housing Corporation June Draude said. "It's a gift that is given every day to help people all across Saskatchewan. Local housing authorities not only look after our important investment in public housing, but more importantly, care about the community members who reside in these properties. Our government truly values their commitment to improving the lives of Saskatchewan people in need."
The luncheon, which was hosted by Minister Draude, honoured the following individuals for their years of volunteer service with their respective local housing authority:
Evelyn Baxter - Codette Housing Authority
Jean Babiuk - Sturgis Housing Authority
Saskatchewan has a network of 267 housing authorities served by more than 1,500 volunteer members across the province. The Province of Saskatchewan appoints these volunteers, and recognition of long-service is a regular initiative by the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation.
