The Snoqualmie Valley Community Network Celebrates Community Members Who Make Our Valley Shine
On Tuesday, June 6th, over 125 community members gathered for the Snoqualmie Valley Community Network’s (SVCN) 21st Annual Rise & Shine awards breakfast. This event celebrates volunteers whose efforts make the Snoqualmie Valley shine and was held at the Riverview School District building in Duvall. Thirty-six Rise & Shine awards were handed out this year. Awardees were nominated by close acquaintances such as friends, families, colleagues, and neighbors. A Snoqualmie Valley Community Network Board committee selected the following award recipients from all the nominations that were submitted.
This year’s Rise & Shine award recipients span a broad range of service sectors including youth & families, faith communities, public service, senior services, environment/sustainability, health & wellness, and technology. The recipients also represent all of the communities served by SVCN including Duvall, Carnation, Fall City, Snoqualmie, and North Bend.
Traditionally, the individuals and businesses who are nominated for a Rise & Shine award are humble servant leaders, who do not seek recognition for their efforts. SVCN values the opportunity for this annual community gathering to celebrate the award recipients’ many contributions to the SVCN vision of a Snoqualmie Valley where all residents thrive.
