Two young Colusa County volunteers beat the summer’s heatwave and gave a helping hand at the Colusa Certified Farmers Market.
“(Madden Rund and Rosita Diaz) went above and beyond the call of duty,” said Jennifer Diaz, the Colusa Certified Farmers Market manager, and the mother of Rosita Diaz.
Both Rund and Diaz were recently recognized by the Colusa County Chamber of Commerce for the contribution during the Colusa Certified Farmer’s Market with a Certificate of Appreciation.
“From every endeavor of greeting vendors, helping vendors unload products, welcoming customers, and even selling products, Madden and Rosita excelled at their civic duty,” said Diaz.
“Madden and Rosita are two terrific kids who brighten the farmer’s market with their energy and smiles,” said Pam DaGrossa a frequent market customer and Colusa resident.
“Finding volunteers to help out in any organization has always been a tough battle,” said Diaz. “They took their jobs seriously, with enthusiasm, and without expecting anything in return. I feel it is important to acknowledge good deeds in our community, especially with today’s youth.”
Cynthia White, a frequent market customer and Colusa resident, added, “They both gave a great spark of cheerfulness to the market. I look forward to seeing them next year.” ■
