Start of the 2023 Season &

May at the Village 

Hello everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful winter and that you are as excited as I am to start another great season at Haney.

Before I start telling you what's coming up, I would like to know if you are still interested in volunteering. If you NO longer want to volunteer, please reply to this email here, and I will remove your information from our list. This is important to me as I am trying to update our Volunteer Database. Note that this is ONLY for the Volunteer mailing list; if you have signed up to receive, for example, emails about upcoming events or membership, you will STILL receive those emails.

For those who would like to volunteer this year, please fill out the 2023 Volunteer Application form and send it back to me. HINT: you will need to save the form to your computer or phone before emailing it back to me at, or if you prefer, you can print the form and drop it off at the office Mon - Fri between 10 am and 4 pm or mail it to:
751 Hwy 97B NE PO Box 1642 Salmon Arm, BC V1E 4P7.

No changes on your Volunteers Application Form?
Suppose your contact information and the positions you want to volunteer for remain the same. In that case, email me stating you want to volunteer during our 2023 season and that your contact information is the same as last year. Sign the email with your full name, and I will take care of the rest!
