It’s easy to look around any given event and find a volunteer. Which makes it even easier to say ‘thank you’ to that volunteer and to all of the others whom you encounter throughout the weekend. It was quite warm this weekend at Copper Meadows, but you never saw a volunteer without a smile on their face. Be sure to take a minute to thank our volunteers — and do some volunteering yourself! — next time you’re at an event, it will go a long way!
