For Marnie Brown, volunteering is not simply a pastime, it has truly become her passion. Brown, like so many avid volunteers, explained that although she initially began volunteering as a way to help others, she quickly discovered the incredible impact the experience had on her own life. “I know with certainty that I’m going to learn something I didn’t know and I am going to meet some interesting people,” she described.
Brown is one of over 13 million Canadians Volunteer Canada, along with Volunteer Lethbridge, are seeking to recognize, celebrate and thank during National Volunteer Week running April 6-12.

It is time, once again, for the annual Kiwanis Music and Speech Arts Festival, March 31-April 12. “It’s always new and exciting. I always love listening to new people,” said Kiwanis festival general manager Beth Cook.
As always, it is a great opportunity to check out talent of all ages participating in 80 different sessions from the popular organ category which returned last year to the always popular piano, plus there will be numerous bands and acting.
This year, there are approximately 1,100 entrants who will be adjudicated by 15 adjudicators, who will offer advice and suggestions for improvement and recommend them to move on to the provincial festival.
