Volunteering over the past year has been like no other, and the City of Chestermere would like to thank all those who took time to give back to their community this year.
“Especially during the uncertainty of 2020, volunteers were an essential part of keeping our community going. Whether it was by delivering meals, providing supplies, dropping off groceries or just being available for a phone call, volunteers have been a critical part of weathering this pandemic. To all our volunteers, we say ‘thank you’,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers.
National Volunteer Week is celebrated annually across Canada and the theme for 2021 is The Value of One, the Power of Many which “reflects on the awe-inspiring acts of kindness by millions of individuals AND the magic that happens when we work together towards a common purpose.”
