Bruderheim's Sherry Cote has received some  recognition.
A surprised Cote won Senator Doug Black's Volunteer Contribution Award for the time and effort she places in the community.
She works at the town office as their director of legal and legislative services.
Cote's coworkers at the town office nominated her.
"Of course, she helps me nominate and apply for so many things so we kind of had to go around and do this behind her back," explained town manager Patty Podoborozny. "It was pretty exciting to be able to recognize her within our own community as a great volunteer."
Among her accomplishments, she's passionate about Communities in Bloom as well as bringing in Meteorite Meals, a form of Meals on Wheels to serve seniors in the town. She's also involved in the Bruderheim Ag Society, Bruderheim Minor Sports, the Recreation and Culture Board, planning the Canada Day festivities and so much more.
"Whenever she sees a hole in something, she makes sure she fills it, she doesn't stop until she figures out how to solve it," added Podoborozny. "Pretty impressive lady and we're pretty blessed to have her in our community."
The normally humble Cote was quite touched to be one of the first recipients of the award in the town, along with Stephanie Campbell, who was also recognized.
