Did You Know... The Town of Athabasca hosts a Council Appreciation Dinner every year to acknowledge the service of Town staff as well as individuals and groups who serve the community.

Annual event acknowledges community supporters

Every year, the Town of Athabasca hosts a Council Appreciation Dinner to acknowledge the service of Town staff as well as individuals and groups who serve the community.

The event this year was again well-attended, filling the lounge of the Athabasca Regional Multiplex on Sept. 22 with honourees and guests, Town staff and administration, and Town Councillors.

Mayor Roger Morrill welcomed the group and on behalf of Council expressed great appreciation for the service and support provided by so many in the community.

“The people represented here make the community what it is,” said Roger. “Council says thank you for being here this evening and the opportunity to share in your excellence.”

Many individuals, committees, boards and community groups were named and recognized, with particular acknowledgement given to the members of the Athabasca Volunteer Fire Department. Along with the Town of Athabasca, this year marks 100 years of service in the community for the fire department.

Awards were presented to firefighters with one year and five years of service, and with 35 years of service to his credit, member Rod Winder has set an admirable record of commitment to the department and to the community.

Other highlights of the evening included a five-year service award presented to Town staff member Montana Skye, and acknowledgement given to community member Marilyn Mol for 20 years of service to date as archivist for the Athabasca Archives.
