Annual ‘Labor of Love’ celebration has become a ‘labor of love’ for organizers

Bass Lake Community Foundation’s “Labor of Love” celebration, which honors the area’s best in voluntary community volunteerism, has become a “labor of love” for organizers, according to organizers.

“It’s a lot of labor,” said Pauline Zanders, vice president of BLCF, who spearheaded the initial festival in 2003, “but I love it. Many of us do. Some of us refer to it as ‘a labor of love.'”

Each year, community volunteers who embrace their hard work to the extent that they consider it enjoyable — and not simply some kind of empathetic obligation — receive accolades during a half-day event, usually scheduled for late June.

In addition to this year’s Labor of Love award-winners, key contributors on the “Labor of Love” board will be among those honored at this year’s Labor of Love event, scheduled for late-June.
