Valleyfest awarded Key to the City | Community Spirit
From the City of Spokane Valley:
On Tuesday, September 24 Mayor Tom Towey recognized ValleyFest and its volunteers as the winner of this month's Community Recognition Award. Each month, as a part of the celebration of Spokane Valley's Ten year Anniversary, a Key to the City is presented to an individual or organization that has had a positive impact on the community or neighborhood.
Spokane Valley citizen Rick Hayward nominated ValleyFest because of its many benefits to the public. Among the offerings of the festival, Hayward highlighted the low and no cost entertainment provided to all ages in a family friendly atmosphere during the three-day event. Hayward said that the festival has provided "our only home grown celebration of ourselves" for over ten years. He also emphasized the importance of an occasion that allows the community to get together and collectively take pride in its identity.
The City of Spokane Valley encourages community members to nominate for recognition those individuals/organizations/businesses whose efforts have contributed positively to the Spokane Valley community.
