One of the Tennessee volunteers currently deployed to Canada was honored this weekend by the Canadian Red Cross for outstanding contributions serving those affected by the massive wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alberta.
The Canadian Red Cross honored one Canadian and one American, and East Tennessee volunteer John Manners was the American! John is pictured here with Canadian Red Cross President and CEO Conrad Sauvé.
John is a Red Cross Disaster Action Team captain from Loudon County, and his dream assignment was going on an international operation. And this has been quite the deployment for John! Just recently, we posted a photo of John when he met Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a Red Cross shelter. Congratulations to John!
