The KATVA Team is proud to announce our 2020 Volunteer of the Year Recipient – Jim Laporte
Our team had a plan to recognize Jim at our 2020 AGM this year but sadly we lost Jim to cancer before we had the chance. Anyone who knew Jim knew that his family and friends came first but he was also so very passionate about KATVA. He was a tireless and dedicated volunteer who did everything that was ever asked of him and more. There wasn’t one part of the KATVA operations that Jim wasn’t involved in somehow. He was an avid ATV Safety trainer and the kids who worked with him adored him almost as much as he enjoyed them. He could be seen on the trails putting up signs or using a shovel and in the KATVA booth at every show greeting members and promoting the trails to the general public. He was a wealth of knowledge and experience and such a valuable part of our club but more than that he was a member of the KATVA family. Our club will never been the same without him and we thank him for all of his years of dedication to making this club a success. Thank you Jim!
