Citizen of the Year: Yvonne Machan

Citizen of the Year: Yvonne Machan


I extend a big congratulations to Turner Valley resident, Yvonne Machan. She was named Black Diamond’s Citizen of the Year for 2017 in recognition of her work implementing the Diamond Valley Citizens on Patrol (COP) program.

Yvonne wanted to help reduce crime in Black Diamond and Turner Valley by bringing more eyes and ears to the streets for RCMP, and believes that volunteering in the community should be a high priority for everyone.

On behalf of our community, thank you.
