Each year communities across Canada celebrate National Volunteer Week in the month of April. National Volunteer Week is to thank and honour individuals who donate their time to help others and by supporting the causes in which they believe.
The Town of Amherst is collecting nominations of individuals who you feel, deserve special volunteer recognition.
Individuals can also be nominated for the Provincial Volunteer Award on behalf of the Town of Amherst and attend a Provincial Volunteer Appreciation Reception in Halifax. A committee of Town of Amherst staff members selects a candidate meeting the criteria. The chosen Volunteer of the Year is invited to attend the reception to represent the Town of Amherst.
The Town of Amherst also hosts a Volunteer Appreciation Reception to honour all nominees. Details will be provided at a later date.
Nominations for both the provincial and Town of Amherst awards must be submitted by March 11.
