Volunteers are the backbone of our club. Without the volunteer work done by your fellow members the club could not function.
For this reason, once a year, the club treats our volunteers to a special invitation only event to say thank you and to announce the winners of the Volunteer of the Year Awards!
On October 12, we gathered at the Hot House Café to socialize, eat and celebrate. A total of 11 awards were announced.
