Each year, the Municipality hosts a wine and cheese to celebrate the community's volunteers. Honorees are presented with an award, which are presented by Mayor and Council.
In 2019, the Municipality developed a new Volunteer Recognition Policy to provide consistency in the way our community volunteers are recognized, and to provide a meaningful recognition and award to those selected for each category. Please review the new Volunteer Recognition Policy, and if there are any questions please call the Municipal Office (705) 898-2294.
Nomination Forms will be made available at the end of October to anyone wanting to submit a nomination for a community member. Anyone looking to nominate someone is encouraged to do so using the form below.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Municipality will not be hosting this year's event.
