What Calgarians often don't know is that community associations are run by their neighbours and other volunteers in their community.
As a way to highlight and showcase the many different faces of community volunteers during Community Association Awareness Month, the Federation of Calgary Communities connected with local photographer Kelly Hofer, and captured the Faces of Community. One of the featured volunteers is Noshy Karbani from the Ward 3 community of Taradale.
Noshy Karbani, Vice-President, Taradale Community Association
Noshy got involved with the Taradale Community Association 11 years ago in 2006 when the community association set up a booth in her local supermarket and she stopped to find out what they were about. Since then she has been a part of many exciting initiatives and events that she looks forward to year after year.
When asked what keeps her motivated she said that over time she has seen the community spirit grow and neighbours come out to more events, encouraging her to stay involved. She thinks it’s important to volunteer in your community to get to know your neighbours and says that if you give it a try you will be hooked!
