MRC honours local volunteers

MRC Pontiac Warden Jane Toller sits with several volunteers from throughout the Pontiac. Each municipal council chose a volunteer to recognize for their hard work in each community for the first annual event.

The MRC Pontiac hosted its first volunteer appreciation ceremony in Campbell’s Bay on June 10.
Each municipality recognized one volunteer that was chosen by the mayor and council. The volunteers were given a plaque in recognition of their hard work as well as some kind words said by each mayor.
“Volunteers are very important in the community and we want to properly recognize them,” said MRC Warden, Jane Toller. “Volunteerism is something that we will never take for granted.”
Next year, the MRC will welcome submissions from the community.
“This year’s short turnaround meant that mayors and council made the nominations,” Toller said.
Henry and Joan Sallafranque were the first to be called up for their extensive work in Allumettes Island.
Next up was Gilles Ouimet who has put in countless hours for the Thorne Community Recreation Association (TCRA) and the Oktoberfest committee.
