2018 Citizen of the Year

August 20, 2018

The Citizen of the Year award is presented to an individual who continually gives of themselves and helps many others in the process.

 At the core of Winkler are inspiring people who live here. The people who motivate and take action; who get involved and make a difference. They are the ordinary extraordinary; the behind-the-scenes catalysts; the connectors and the motivators.

“The Winkler Community Foundation is excited to announce Mr. Frank A. Wiebe (retired BDO accountant) as the 2018 Citizen of the Year for Winkler.  Frank has been selected for his exemplary leadership skills, commitment to the tasks undertook, and integrity of character; not only willing to lead but always taking a strong interest in mentoring and empowering other leaders.” – Scott Doell, Winkler Community Foundation President.

The Citizen of the Year, once again, will have the opportunity to present the Citizen of the Year Choice grant of $1000 to a charitable organization of his choice at the banquet.

Mr. Frank Wiebe was honored at the 2018 Citizen of the Year Banquet at the Days Inn Conference Centre on Thursday, September 27, 2018.
