Mayor Ed Mayne has proclaimed April 7 to April 13 as Volunteer Week in the City of Parksville.
National Volunteer Week is an opportunity for the city to recognize the contributions of Parksville volunteers in our community. The city thanks the volunteers and community organizations for their outstanding contributions.
“Volunteers donate their time and good old fashioned elbow grease to our community programs which rely on volunteers to donate their time to help others every single day,” said Mayne. “We thank and celebrate those people who make a tremendous contribution by volunteering in our community.”
From opportunities to develop new skills, to finding deep and meaningful personal connections, the magic of volunteering creates social and economic value for all, for individuals, families, organizations, neighbourhoods, communities and ultimately, for Canada itself.
