Program promotes positive change

The Vernon chapter of Junior Chamber International would like to thank the community for its support

The Vernon chapter of Junior Chamber International would like to thank the community for its support of the 2015 Good Citizen of the Year award.

Many individuals and businesses were involved in making this year’s award a success.

This year, the Good Citizen of the Year was awarded $500 from Okanagan Valley School of Massage Therapy to be donated to the winner’s charity of choice.

The selected 2015 recipient, awarded this February, is Sarah Armstrong.

Sarah chose the Teen Junction to receive the $500.

JCI Vernon would also like to thank all of the participating businesses and individuals for their generosity of the 2015 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.

JCI is the leading global network of active young citizens between the ages of 18 and 40.

The organization’s aim is to promote positive change while providing opportunities for leadership training, community contribution, business networking, fellowship, and international experience.

The Jaycees meet on a monthly basis.
