Chamber Director Brent Feyter was honored to present Joella Bevan with Fort Macleod’s 2020 Citizen of the Year Award! Joella was born and raised in Fort Macleod and she has been raising her family here as well. When you are from a small town like ours, you know that if you’d like to see things happen, you get to work and make it happen…. And that’s just what Joella does! She gives of her time to multiple organizations and events to ensure their success, including the Wilderness Run, Triathlon, Santa Claus and Birthday Parades, Swim Club, etc. Because of her selfless service, positivity, and obvious love for her hometown, she helps make Fort Macleod a better place to live.
To quote her nomination, “Joella tirelessly gives of her time to multiple events and doesn’t hesitate to volunteer. She has the biggest heart and cares about her community.” Yes, we wholeheartedly agree! Joella embodies the traits of a Citizen of the Year and is truly deserving of this award!
Congratulations Joella! Thank you for all you do for our community!
