A Melfort man will be recognized this Friday at a Canada 150 medal presentation in Tisdale for his dedication and hard work around the community.
Trent Fedorychka got a letter in the mail last week informing him that he was selected as a recipient of a Canada 150 medal.
Fedorychka talked about why he chooses to be so involved with non-profits and helping wherever he can.
“Just working everyday with the local community with the non-profits, we get a choice to make a difference in our communities with every thing we get to do, we do have a say in what goes on in our community and we want it to be the best community that we can have and that certainly is awesome,” said Fedorychka.
He is heavily involved with the Melfort Kinsmen and also lends a hand with a few other community groups.
Fedorychka shared a quote from a friend, “volunteering is the best exercise of democracy, you vote in elections once a year but when you get to volunteer, you vote everyday about the kind of community that you want to live in.”
The letter Fedorychka received indicated that the Canada 150 medal is a way to recognize “the unsung heroes of our community who make an impact without expecting anything in return.”
Melfort’s Tara Muntain and Tisdale track coach Harvey Weber are also receiving medals on Friday night.
