Volunteers the Lifeline of the Hank Snow Home Town Museum

Marie Ward was a dedicated volunteer with the Hank Snow Society.  March 20, 2021 Marie passed away.  We will miss her smiling face, loving personality and dedicated helper at our many events.  The Hank Snow Society sends our condolences to her husband who is also a volunteer and to her family and her many friends.

Volunteers are the lifeline of our organization from our dedicated Board of Directors, past and present, to folks like Charlotte White who spend many hours making sure we are able continue to bring folks to the Museum and to the many events sponsored by the Hank Snow Society.


Today we want to highlight the help given to our organization by Sylvia “Sibby” Forbes who is also known as Sibby 50/50.   The plaque seen here is just one of over 20 Sibby has received in thanks.  Over the years Sibby has given her time and special talents to fundraise for our organization.  This has been appreciated and today we will provide Sibby with thanks for her 50/50 monies raised and for her talent as a singer as well.  Musicians form the backbone of how we continue to exist.  Those like Sibby who made it to the Hank Snow Tributes every year provide the entertainment and help so that the Tributes over the years continued to provide the major fundraising vehicle to keep the Museum open.   Some like Sibby not only provided entertainment but also helped out in many other ways during our sponsored events such as behind the scenes at the Tribute and shows.  Today we honour Sibby who spent many Tribute hours walking around the audience and her shouts of “50/50” could be heard loud and clear.  Thank you Sibby.
