Congratulations to our 2017 Volunteers of the Year! Thank you for your continued service and the positive impact you've made to our High Desert community.


Volunteers of the Year are local volunteers that have been nominated and selected based on their individual contributions to the community. Currently, volunteer nominations are closed; organizations wishing to nominate a specific volunteer may do so prior to the 2020 Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. Information on the 2020 Volunteer Appreciation Dinner will be provided prior to the event.
