National Volunteer Week will take place from April 19th to April 25th, 2020.  This is a time when communities across Canada celebrate to thank and honor the people in their community who donate their time to help others by supporting the causes in which they believe.

Annually the Province of Nova Scotia recognizes one outstanding volunteer from every Nova Scotia municipality to receive the “Provincial Volunteer Award”.  We are requesting your assistance in helping select the name of a person to receive this award for the Town of Pictou.

The awards will be presented to each recipient on Monday, April 27th in Halifax.  If you are aware of an outstanding volunteer who is a resident of the Town of Pictou, please submit their name to Pictou Recreation and Parks on the nomination form by Tuesday, February 18th, 2020.
