Clare Special Olympics is pleased to nominate Josanne Deveau as volunteer of the year for their organization, and the Municipality of Clare is proud to select Josanne as its Volunteer Representative of the Year.

Josanne has volunteered for the Clare Special Olympics for more than eight years, first to assist her sister (a Clare Special Olympics athlete), then devoting her time with coaching and fundraising. Her patience and big smile have earned her the love and respect from the athletes. Josanne’s involvement has also helped the organization get though difficult times brought on by COVID-19.

Besides the Clare Special Olympics, Josanne is an active volunteer and mentor for the Clare-Digby Minor Hockey Association. She loves to see women enjoying the sport as much as she does. Congratulations, Josanne!
