Volunteer Week in Mississippi Mills.
Wanting to recognize and honour our community volunteers, the Almonte Civitan Club and the Municipality of Mississippi Mills C&EDC co-hosted a Volunteer Appreciation wine and cheese the evening of April 13, to say thank you to all Mississippi Mills volunteers. A happy and appreciative crowd attended. All wanted to recognize their fellow volunteers and to celebrate just how significant the work volunteers do is. Volunteers enrich the lives of those around them by helping make our community a strong and vital place to live.
Miss Mills was on hand to welcome the volunteers and to pose with them for photographs taken by Civitan Bob Lesser. Almonte Civitan Club President Alice Puddington and Counsellor Alex Gillis welcomed the crowd of over 225 volunteers from throughout Mississippi Mills. The importance of the activities the volunteers do in support of the community was emphasized by them. Where would we be without our volunteers?
