2017 / Volunteers of the Year 2017 - Sandra Hattle & Jackie Herrgott

Sandra Hattle

Sandra has been an active volunteer with Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest for the past 19 years. While the majority of her time has been spent with the Downtown Production Committee she also sits as Vice Chair of the Conventions Committee along with a background that includes the former Oktoberfest Idol Committee and the International Talent Committee. Sandra has been a source of energy in all her endeavours as a volunteer. Nothing seems overwhelming to her and she takes on tasks with determination and enthusiasm. Her general overall Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest knowledge is a strong asset. She is readily seen not only during the festival but throughout the year. This is a testament to her commitment to Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest.

Jackie Herrgott

Jackie is a 20 year volunteer with Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest. She has served many hours on a number of committees including the former Onkel Hans Committee and the Marketing & PR Committee. Most recently Jackie serves as Chair of the Onkel Hans Food Drive, and sits on both the Parade Executive and Hospitality Committee. Jackie takes a personal interest in challenging her committee every year to top last year’s Onkel Hans Food Drive’s numbers. Jackie is passionate and her outgoing personality is contagious which is evident in all the volunteers she is able to muster to help collect food, money and keep the food drive running smoothly. Her ability to work well with anyone and exceptional organizational skills mark Jackie as one of the shining stars among volunteers.
