Campbell River will celebrate volunteer week with proclamation signing and flag raising

In recognition of that contribution, Volunteer Campbell River invites you to celebrate with us during National Volunteer Week April 15-21

National Volunteer Week is a special time set aside each spring to honour the volunteers who donate their time and energy to their fellow citizens and non-profit organizations.  It is also meant to raise awareness of the vital contribution volunteers make to shape our communities and to the identity and values of our country.

In recognition of that contribution, Volunteer Campbell River would like to invite you to celebrate with us during National Volunteer Week April 15-21.

On Mon., April 16 at 1 p.m., Volunteer Campbell River invites volunteers and volunteer co-ordinators to a Proclamation of National Volunteer Week and flag raising with Mayor Walter Jakeway along with the opportunity to take part in a community “Faces of Volunteerism” group photo at city hall.  This will be followed by a free lunch and volunteer appreciation cake to thank volunteers for the wonderful work they do.

Come on out, meet your neighbours and network with other volunteers as we celebrate.

On Wed., April 18 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., Volunteer Campbell River will host a second event in support of volunteerism with a “Best Practices for Successful Volunteer Engagement” workshop facilitated by Marjorie Driscoll.  This workshop will highlight: Strategies For Strong Volunteer Management and How To Grow Your Volunteer Program.

This workshop is ideal for volunteer co-ordinators, board members and staff working with volunteers.  Workshop fees are $35 for member agencies of Volunteer Campbell River, $50 for non-members.

To register for the workshop or for more information call (250) 287-8111 or e-mail louise@volunteercr.ca

Volunteer Campbell River would like to thank our sponsors of National Volunteer Week events including long time supporters Investor’s Group and the City of Campbell River along with the Oyster Bay Resort.
