Celebrate Volunteers!

We believe in celebrating the great work done by our local volunteers. Each April during Volunteer Week, we host a special reception to thank our volunteers. Volunteer Week in 2017 will be from April 23 - 29, 2017.

The Municipality of Chester is taking time during Volunteer Week to celebrate the tremendous efforts of our local volunteers. Every day volunteers give of their time and energy to the community and it is these volunteer efforts that make our communities strong and vibrant.

As a way to say “Thank You”, we will host a Volunteer Awards Ceremony and Reception at Forest Heights Community School on Wednesday, April 26 starting 7:00 pm. Everyone is invited to join us as we recognize:

  • Brenda Garland, Chester

  • Sylvia Lucas, Blandford
  • Karen MacKenzie-Stepner, Chester
  • Ashley Rafuse, Chester Basin

  • Blandford Fire & Rescue (Group)
  • Executive of the New Ross 200th Anniversary Committee
  • Harvey Dominey, Seana Langille, Bonny Young & Mary Snair (Group)

After the ceremony, everyone is invited to stay for some refreshments and congratulate the award recipients. This is a great opportunity to mingle and talk with the various volunteers from our Municipality. We ask that you please RSVP by Tuesday, April 18 by calling 902-275-3490.
