Volunteer of the Year - Lisa Rieger

Updated 2019-12-01

Lisa Rieger joined the Air Cadet community when two of her children enrolled with 38 Anavets in Prince Albert, approx 4 years ago.  Very quickly Lisa identified several areas where she could get involved and put some of her many skills and talents to work. 
She is well connected, much admired and respected within the community of Prince Albert and beyond.  She utilizes those relationships to further her work with our organization.  Her peers describe Lisa as a terrific motivator - she makes work fun!  
The SSC has grown with her at the helm. She works tirelessly to prepare and organize for events. Lisa is often looking for ways to give back to other local organizations, something she encourages her children, all cadets and fellow cadet parents to do as well. She appreciates and reciprocates good deeds.  
She is the brainchild of the squadron’s major fundraising event of the year.  
Three years ago she introduced the concept of hosting a huge Trade Fair - one stop shopping early in the holiday season, showcasing many local artisans and home based businesses.  She galvanized the cadet community and local businesses to get involved.  Again, everyone has a blast working to raise funds with the opportunity for our cadets in uniform to assist wherever they can during the event.  
Lisa has a passion for Camp Saskadet. She pitches in whenever cadets are using the camp and most recently got involved with a volunteer work party delivering new flooring to the camp. 
While she enjoys and excels in her role as SSC chair, Lisa understands the value and importance of change.  She is stepping aside to encourage other parents to bring fresh ideas forward - but understand she will continue as a mentor and carry on with the many initiatives that she has begun. 
Lisa also has a day job!  She is the Director of Early Childhood Education TLC Daycare Inc. Birch Hills, SK.  She is admired by her staff and adored by the little ones. 
Lisa, together with her husband Joe, has 6 children - 4 of whom are involved in the cadet organization. They also have a child in Navy League and Lisa has recently become an officer with that organization.  
Lisa is a recruiter, a cheerleader, and a champion for the Air Cadet Program!
