Nominate a local volunteer for a Rise and Shine award

Every spring, the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network recognizes outstanding volunteers who, over the past year, have worked to build a healthy future for children and families of the Valley.
   Community members and organizations nominate volunteers who are recognized at a breakfast that will be held this year on June 18 at Adair's on the Green in North Bend. Nomination forms must be submitted by May 22.
   Awardees set an example of building community, and typically go unrecognized or under recognized for their efforts. While many feel uncomfortable with the attention, the Network believes in the importance of recognizing positive role models who make the Valley a better place to live.
   Past recipients include volunteer mentors, Boy Scouts, classroom volunteers, food bank volunteers, volunteer coordinators, and many others. The group asks that if you know of a volunteer, of any age, who works to make the Valley a better place to live, to please submit a nomination form.
   The Network supports, funds, and coordinates local programs that build strong families for a safer community. The Network was established by the state Legislature as part of the 1994 Youth Violence Reduction Act. The Family Policy Council (leaders of five state agencies, four legislators, and a representative of the Governor) provides oversight and support to the Network.
   The group meets the third Tuesday of the month at Chief Kanim Middle School in Fall City.
