Brandon
No such thing as downtime for this volunteer

Chris Heide is a hard working guy. He manages the Brandon branch of CAA full-time. You’d think when someone with a full-time job takes a vacation, they would relax. But that’s not Heide.

When the Royal Canadian Legion held their national track meet and needed security, Heide took a week off to fill the position. He was integral to making the event happen in the first place.

In what might be referred to as his spare time, Heide volunteers as Chair for Brandon First — an organization that brings events to Brandon and drives economic development.

Brandon First has three chair positions: vice chair, chair, and finally past chair. Heide was excited to volunteer as past chair and help the other two positions find their footing.

And then the vice chair and chair moved away with no one lined up to take their positions.

Without hesitation, Heide jumped right back into his previous roll to ensure Brandon First kept running smoothly. He has served on the board of directors since 2013.

Additionally, Heide is a volunteer for the Wheat City Lions Club and Operation Red Nose. He joins any organization that he feels can make Brandon a better city.

Heide is often seen doing the dirty work like setting up fences and signs — in the rain.

Heide continues to be the default bingo caller for the Wheat City Lions Club and is planning a fundraising event called the Journey For Sight.
