Thank a volunteer this week

This is National Volunteer Week – a time when we give thanks for the many volunteers who make our community such a connected, liveable, and caring place.

The City of Guelph is fortunate to have the support of more than 1,700 volunteers who, in 2013, collectively contributed more than 48,700 volunteer hours toward the delivery of programs and services.

Volunteers make a difference in all kinds of ways – helping local seniors stay active and healthy through programs at the Evergreen Centre; providing hospitality as ushers at River Run Centre; supporting people with special needs with the one2one program; keeping our history alive at Guelph Museums; and giving children and youth new experiences at after-school programs and camps, aquatics programs, and the Guelph Youth Council.

Without the help, hard work, and dedication of volunteers, the City would not be able to provide many of the programs and services we offer. On behalf of the City and its citizens, thank you!

P.S. If you know an outstanding volunteer, what better way to recognize them than by nominating them for a Mayor’s Award? The deadline for nominations is this Thursday, and more information is available at
