A local volunteer and role model was honoured for his contributions to the community.
 
Last night, (September 1) at Co-op's Movie Under the Stars in Legacy Park, Roger MacMillan was presented with a Team Fort Sask jersey.
 
"I like it, it's beautiful. I feel really honored," MacMillan said.
 
The jerseys are presented to community members who go above and beyond.
 
"With these, it's about finding something very, very special and this one was very special, it's about going above and beyond all the time, which is what this community is all about," added mayor Gale Katchur.
 
Even while training and running 100 marathons, all before his 80th birthday, MacMillian still finds time to support local organizations.
 
"I like the community spirit the volunteerism in the community, I volunteer at a couple of places, the Dow Centennial centre and the art gallery a couple of times a week, and I help out at the boys and girls club once in a while and fix bikes for twice but nice," MacMillan said.
 
MacMillan, has called the Fort home for 49 years.
 
"We have it so good in this country in general, compared to other parts of which are very turbulent at this present time, we're so lucky, we have to give a little bit back and do what we can to help those less fortunate."
 
MacMillan joins other outstanding community members on Team Fort Sask including curler Kelsey Rocque.
