Proclamation - National Volunteer Week, April 14 - 20, 2024

Event: National Volunteer Week 

Date: April 14 to 20, 2024 

Whereas Millions of Canadians generously devote their time to both formal and informal volunteering, contributing billions of volunteers hours each year; and

Whereas volunteers in Northumberland County mentor our children, beautify our green spaces, improve patient and client experience, support those feeling isolated, act to foster a more equitable and inclusive society, and fundraise for our charitable organizations; and

Whereas Northumberland County is enriched by the diverse and dedicated volunteers comprising of families, individuals, workers, retirees, and community members of all ages and backgrounds, whose contributions make Northumberland County a more desirable place to live, work and visit; and

Whereas the Corporation of the County of Northumberland is fortunate to have dedicated volunteers who contribute to the operation of our Food 4 All Warehouse, our Business & Entrepreneurship Centre, our Golden Plough Lodge Long-term Care Home, our County Archives and Museum, our County Forest and our Waste and Recycling Programs;

Now Therefore Be It Resolved That I, Warden Brian Ostrander, on behalf of Northumberland County Council, do hereby proclaim April 14 – 20, 2024 to be ‘National Volunteer week’ in Northumberland County.”

Dated this 20th day of March, 2024 

Brian Ostrander, Warden
