Community volunteer Billie Phillips is Chase’s Citizen of the Year.

A Chase resident was honoured for her commitment to the community and her outstanding ability to go above and beyond.

Billie Phillips is  Chase’s Citizen of the Year. She earned this title after careful consideration, and a close review of her many hours spent volunteering with non-profit organizations in the community for the past 30 years.

Phillips is treasurer for both Creekside Seniors and the Chase & District Museum.  She is a life member of Creekside, the Royal Canadian Legion #107 and the RCL Ladies Auxiliary, where she dedicated 25 years as a treasurer, cooked, cleaned and served TGIF dinners, was the entertainment and decorating go-to person, made sandwiches for giant crib, and the list goes on.

Phillips is a quiet, unassuming person with a heart of gold.  She is ready to help anyone with everything.

The Chase Museum is now the main focus of her attention.  The museum fire was devastating to the community, and Phillips has worked tirelessly, side by side with others, helping to restore the archives and artifacts, helping to get everything out of the damaged building and, of course, fundraising.

Phillips is extremely deserving of this award, and both the chamber of commerce and the community of Chase thank her for her all her efforts.

Submitted by the Chase Chamber of Commerce.
