The Stallion Springs CSD held a luncheon on Friday, Jan. 25, to honor all those who have volunteered in the community over the past year. There were more than 80 volunteers in attendance.
General Manager Mary Beth Garrison reviewed all of the things that took place this year in Stallion.
Events and accomplishments included the Chilly Dip, the new community bulletin board was installed, new information boards were installed at the mailbox sites and blood drives collected 108 units of blood.
Holiday activities included a Christmas tree next to the CSD building complete with tree lighting ceremony and Breakfast with Santa.
The Octoberfest raised $5000 for the Parks and Recreation Fund and recycling of cans, bottles and electronicsraised $2853.
Garrison tallied the value of volunteerism to the district as she called upon each group to stand and be recognized.
"The volunteers have donated an estimated 3122 hours, over a year's worth of time," she said, "that at minimum wage would have cost the district $25,756.
"That puts it all in perspective," she added. "We value you, we appreciate you, we wouldn't have the community we have if we didn't have you. Thank you so very, very much."
