Some Prince Albert volunteers will be among the people honoured Friday by the Lifesaving Society.
Lt.-Gov. Vaughn Solomon Schofield will hand out two bravery awards and also help acknowledge the work of volunteers from across Saskatchewan on Friday afternoon at the Government House in Regina.
The Prince Albert residents being honoured are Faye Neiser, Jordan Holmen, Nicole Lychak-Smith and Lorri Ma. The City of Prince Albert is also being recognized.
Two men will be honoured for their bravery.
• Peter Chandler rescued an individual trapped in a submerged vehicle in 2012.
• Germain Dauk of Naicam rescued three friends from drowning after the boat they were in capsized during a storm. The rescue actually occurred back in 1973 but due to the Branch’s 50th anniversary, the event is being commemorated.
