In 1988, Wallace Webber was Port Blandford’s first Citizen of the Year. This program recognized the special efforts of many of Port Blandford’s citizens in making the community stronger. Due to the difficulty of choosing one volunteer from many, the program evolved into a Volunteer Recognition Program that still exists today.
