Each year communities across Canada celebrate National Volunteer week to thank and honour individuals who donate their time to help others and support causes in which they believe. This year National Volunteer Week runs from April 15-21. We will be honouring our nominated local volunteers at the Town of Amherst Volunteer Appreciation Reception on Tuesday, April 17. Over 40 individuals will be recognized for their outstanding contribution to our community.
Spring is officially here! We here at the “A” Team would like to extend our warmest wishes and thoughts to you for a Happy Spring ahead. Although there may still be some evidence leftover from the winter season, springtime is finally here and we hope that you will continue to join with us in helping to keep Amherst clean and tidy. Spring welcomes along with it an opportunity for a fresh start and new growth. We will be forming a Communities in Bloom committee this spring to help us improve upon our community as a whole. A public meeting will be held at the Community Credit Union Building Innovation Centre at 5 Ratchford St. on Wednesday, April 11 at 6pm. If you are interested in becoming an active member of the Communities in Bloom committee, we welcome you to attend.
