In our opinion: Be a part of the 10 per cent

Ninety per cent of the work is done by 10 per cent of the people.

Ninety per cent of the work is done by 10 per cent of the people.

It’s a common thread that weaves itself into the tapestry of nearly any volunteer organization.

Before some get themselves into a lather, any help is appreciated, even if it is just part of the 10 per cent.

This weekend, the Prince Rupert Special Events Society will be putting on the 20th Annual Winterfest. These are the same hard-working folks that bring us Seafest, Children’s Festival, Canada Day to name some of their top projects.

It’s a lot of hard work and be well aware, it is altruism at its finest.

On Friday or Saturday, when you see one of the organizers or workers from this organization, please extend a hearty handshake and a profuse thank you.

When you are done that, how about contacting the society and offer to volunteer — even if it is part of the 10 per cent. They would be glad to have you.
