The Vernon chapter of Junior Chamber International would like to thank the community for its support of the 2012 Good Citizen of the Year award.
Many individuals and businesses were involved in making this year’s award a success.
Each year, the Good Citizen of the Year is awarded $600 from Fraser Financial to be donated to the winner’s charity of choice.
This year’s recipient, Akbal Mund, selected the SPCA and the Road Home Rescue Society, which will share the donation.
JCI Vernon would also like to thank all of the participating businesses and individuals for their generosity of the 2012 Good Citizen of the Year award.
The Good Citizen of the Year is awarded annually to deserving citizens who follow the Junior Chamber philosophy that service to humanity is the best work of life.
The award has a long-standing history in Vernon, which was started by the Vernon Jaycees in 1949 when Dr. E. W. Prowse was pronounced the first recipient.
The Vernon Junior Chamber is an organization for young business people between the ages of 19 and 40.
The organizations aim is to promote positive change while providing opportunities for leadership training, community contribution, business networking, fellowship, and international experience.
The Jaycee’s meet on a monthly basis.
