Volunteer of the Month

Shawn Volk is QEXCA’s Volunteer of the Month for October!
He has been volunteering with the Community Association for the past three years, and has been very involved with maintenance/assisting with the rinks and with sitting on the QEXCA Board. Shawn is always willing to lend a helping hand in the community and, while volunteering, he has had opportunities to meet neighbors and members of the community. By having such an active role with QEXCA Shawn is able to contribute to building a stronger community to raise his family in. In his spare time Shawn enjoys spending time with his wife, Denise, and two young sons, Benjamin and Logan. His family loves to play sports, along with walking and biking in the neighborhood. Thank you for volunteering with QEXCA and for all your hard work and efforts!
