Zelienople Borough 2020 Volunteer of the Year
As you know, the Borough started the Volunteer of the year award program in 2014 to honor outstanding individuals who as a volunteer, has served the Borough of Zelienople with dedication and distinction.
These people give their time, talents and efforts to serve the citizens of this borough and surrounding area, to make people’s lives easier, eliminate suffering and improve the quality of life.
