Home / Community / Volunteers


Volunteers and local non-profit organizations are a valuable piece of our community. Volunteers organize community events, put on community breakfast and suppers, coach sports teams, visit the elderly, and help those in need. In the Municipality of Chester, we have a long list of community groups and an even longer list of hard working volunteers that give freely of their time to benefit the community.

We believe in celebrating the great work done by 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. Each year during National Volunteer Week, we recognize and thank our volunteers. This year, National Volunteer Week is April 24 to 30, 2022.  

The Municipality of Chester is planning for National Volunteer Week, April 24 – 30, 2022.  We want you to start thinking now about ways to celebrate volunteers.


One thing you can do is nominate a volunteer who will be recognized through our Municipal volunteer celebrations.  The person you nominate might be someone who really stepped up and helped during covid restrictions, it might be a youth who volunteers, or it could be a new volunteer.  From all the volunteers that are nominated, one volunteer will be selected to represent the Municipality of Chester at the provincial volunteer awards.  

The deadline to submit your nomination is Friday, March 4, 2022.  Feel free to nominate any deserving volunteer, even if they are not part of your group.  The province has a special Youth Award and Family Award.  We are happy to accept nominations for volunteers that fit into those categories as well.
