Nominate a Volunteer of the Year (Form)
Honored by the Tribal Council in 2023

Greg and Vince Prince were named  “Volunteers of the Year” by Tribal Council. They were nominated by  Theresa R. Lehman, Tribal Council Secretary.  Theresa stated “for over the past 40 years Vince and Greg have continued to volunteer their time prepping and preparing fish for the Tribal picnic.  Since Vince’s retirement he has continued to cook salmon at several functions for the Tribe. Vince an Greg learned this culture of prepping fish from their father and the late Lyle Prince their uncle.  It takes special skills that have been taught and passed down by the elders in their family and community.  Their dedication and respect to all Tribal citizens who love to visit the location when they are at Blyn or down in Jamestown shows. They are willing to discuss the process and show how this tradition is done. They have brought their own children to help volunteer and they all now volunteer alongside them. Looking back over the years I would say they started at a very young age and have completed close to 2400 hours of volunteer work. Which has all been unpaid. Their volunteer work has become consistent. When they attended school, they worked and volunteered alongside their dad Les Prince.”
