April 23 to 28 is Volunteer Week. The Pender Harbour Community School is celebrating the many volunteers in Pender Harbour and we need your help. The Community School in partnership with the Pender Harbour Aquatic and Fitness Centre and the Seniors Initiative groups would like to create a photo project featuring volunteers within our community. If you or your group utilizes the help of volunteers, we would love to include photos of the volunteers in action.
A whole newspaper could be filled with the work of volunteers in Pender Harbour. We have over 55 non-profit organizations and groups in our community with many of them are run entirely by volunteers. It seems many people in Pender put in a full workweek when you look at the number of hours they spend volunteering. Major groups such as the Madeira Park Legion, the Pender Harbour Rotary Club, Seniors Initiative and the Healthy Meals Program, Blues, Jazz and Chamber Festivals, April Tools, Pender Harbour Days and May Day and our local Fire Departments to name just a few all rely on volunteers. Our elementary school activities would not exist without the parent and community volunteers. The list is endless.
Please help us acknowledge the work of these dedicated volunteers. Please email a 4×6 photo or two of volunteers doing their work to firstname.lastname@example.org soon so we can include them in our project. For more information, please call the Pender Harbour Community School at 604-883-2826.
