Bud and Friends have been selected as Volunteer Group of the Year for 2015 by The Canadian Mental Health Association of the Kootenays.

The announcement was made at a gala held May 29 at the Casino of the Rockies.

In addition, they hold a very popular Senior Sing Along at Branch 24 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Cranbrook.

The group provides an hour of lively singing and engaging their audiences to "sing-a-long" with them from their book of 165 familiar songs.

The group consists of Bud Abbott, Elsie Barnett, Caroline Gottinger, Sara Kershaw, Bill Nightingale and Joel Vinge and their singing is enthusiastically supported by Carol McGrath on the piano.
