One of the Colorado Plateau Horseman’s Hall of Fame Board members won’t be present for the induction ceremony July 16. That’s because Gordon Hirschi, of Vernal, Utah, is receiving his own award as a member of the Uintah Basin Back Country Horsemen. Here is the notice of their award from the state of Utah:

The Utah Commission on Service and Volunteerism, office of the Lieutenant Governor would like to congratulate the Back Country Horsemen for receiving the Volunteer Recognition Certificate; this certificate recognizes Utah residents who demonstrate exemplary volunteer service to their community.


In addition to the certificate recognition, one volunteer/organization is chosen only three times a year to be given the UServeUtah Power of Service Award. Your organization has been selected to receive the UServeUtah Power of Service Award because of your significant commitment to the overall well-being of the populations which you serve. This Award recognizes not only your efforts to improve your community and help better the lives of those around you, but it symbolizes the compassion, patience, and kindness that you so willingly demonstrated through your volunteer efforts.


We would like to invite all Uinta Basin Back Country Horsemen members to the Utah Commission on Service and Volunteerism Board meeting on Thursday, July 16, 2015 at 2:00 pm to be presented with the award. The meeting is held on the 2nd floor in the State Capitol Board Room. Directions and parking information can be found here. I will contact you soon with the specific time during the meeting when you’ll receive your award. You are welcome to stay for the whole board meeting or just the time dedicated for the award.


If you would like to respond to this email and share how volunteering with Back Country Horsemen enriches your life or anything else you would like us to know, we would love to hear it.


We look forward to honoring you for the significant positive impact you are making in our world!
