Each year, communities across Canada celebrate National Volunteer Week as a way to recognize the extraordinary contributions of individuals who volunteer their time and skills to provide services and programs in our communities.
This year, National Volunteer Week is from April 16 to 22. The Municipality of the County of Cumberland is accepting nominations for individuals that deserve special volunteer recognition.
Nominees will be honoured at an event recognizing them for their efforts. Individuals may also be nominated for a Provincial Volunteer Award on behalf of the Municipality of Cumberland. One nominee from each category will be selected to represent the Municipality at the Provincial Volunteer Awards.
All nominees will receive a letter to thank them for their community contribution. They will also be invited to attend the Cumberland Volunteer Celebration in April to receive a certificate from the mayor and council.
The nominee(s) selected to represent the municipality will also receive an invitation to attend the provincial volunteer appreciation event in Halifax, planned for September.
