The Yorkton event, which raises awareness and funds for cancer research, had over 100 people involved and raised over $5,000. Organizer Nadine Frisk would like to thank everyone who contributed to making the event a success, and the community overall for the outpouring of support. Local residents honored By DEVIN WILGER N-R Writer The Yorkton Chamber of Commerce has inducted two new life members into its ranks. Life membership recognizes people who have distinguished themselves through service over their lives. The two people granted life membership were Ruth Shaw and Allan Bailey. Shaw has been a volunteer in the community for over 60 years, working with the Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club and a wide variety of other community organizations. She is perhaps best known for her work with the Yorkton Film Festival, and is the last founding member of the Yorkton Film Society. Her work with the festival has been recognized with the Ruth Shaw 4 Best in Saskatchewan award. Bailey has been involved in the City of Yorkton for decades, including time spent as mayor and as a consistent part of various groups in the city. A recipient of the Volunteer Medal, Bailey says that he feels honored to be recognized for his work in the community, but that he was happy to do it. “I enjoyed every minute of it, I always accepted anything given to me as a challenge, and I had a great help in my late wife Colleen who was always encouraging me to get involved and she did as well. Yorkton has been a wonderful community to live in, raise a family in, and do business in,” Bailey says. Continued on Page 2.
