Prud'homme Trucks Ltd. wins Volunteer
Ladies and Gentlemen… We have a winner!
SaskEnergy, the Presenting Sponsor and
Champion of Volunteers for the 2005 Canada Summer Games,
has led a major initiative to recruit volunteers for the
Games as part of National Volunteer Week.
Today, we are happy to announce that
Prud'homme Trucks Ltd. has won the Corporate
Challenge by having the highest per capital volunteer
registration of any of the participating corporate
sponsors and has been crowned Volunteer Champion of
National Volunteer Week. Congratulations are certainly
in order! Their community spirit is a shining example of
what can be accomplished when people truly believe in
the power of community.
But there's still time!
With 105 days to go, the Canada Summer
Games are still working towards our goal of 6000
volunteers. Becoming a Games volunteer requires a
minimum commitment of 16 hours (four, 4 hour shifts).
Volunteerism is an enriching experience that leaves a
lasting impression on the individuals involved, as well
as on the community as a whole.
If you would like to volunteer but are
not registered, take a few minutes to do so on-line
(www.regina2005.ca - Apply to be a Volunteer) - there
2800 spots remaining so apply soon to ensure your
position within the Games.
Your time is valuable and we appreciate
your volunteerism. For more information, please visit
