This may not be a large community, but that doesn’t mean large efforts are not needed and appreciated when it comes to staging community functions.
Special events like Nakusp’s recent Canada Day celebrations and ongoing efforts like the work done at our local museum and other venues, require the selfless contributions of caring folks.
There are special occasions that come up from time to time designed for showering thanks on the energetic community-minded folks who seem to show up when something needs to get done. These special tribute times are great, but the gratitude should really flow freely year round.
The effort and expense needed to pull off a banquet, benefit concert, national birthday party or… you name it, may not seem like such a big deal unless we all stop to think of doing it ourselves.
Many hands really do make the work light, and many thanks to the many who prove that point, year round.
