Volunteer Week quickly approaching


National Volunteer Week, April 19 – 25, 2009, is an opportunity to recognize and thank volunteers in Rimbey and across Canada. Organizations involved with the arts, health, sports, environment, education, recreation, community development and social services rely on the passion and commitment of volunteers every day.

Rimbey’s Volunteer Week theme for 2009 is, Volunteers – Stars of the Community, and it reminds us to consider the impact that volunteers have in Rimbey. Volunteering is an active expression of your concern for the place you live or the world. Just pitch in and do what you can.

During National Volunteer Week, I encourage everyone in Rimbey to stop for a moment and think about, then thank the many volunteers that make Rimbey a great place to live, work and raise a family. Ask yourself what you can do to increase the ability of volunteers and voluntary organizations to positively impact our community.
