Volunteer Citizen of the Year

The Quesnel Volunteer Citizen of the Year program recognizes and appreciates the efforts of so many who willingly give of their time and talent to contribute to Quesnel’s enviable level of community spirit and pride. Each year, co-sponsored with the Quesnel Cariboo Observer, the City asks the public for Volunteer Citizen of the Year nominations.
