Thank a volunteer

This is the first year the Shire has created categories for nominees.

There are six categories volunteers can be nominated for: community/other groups, environment/arts, school groups (including P&C volunteers), sporting groups and emergency services.

The sixth category is the Lifetime Contributor, recognising a volunteer who has continuously volunteered with any one or multiple organisations for many years.

Shire President Helen Dullard said it was a fantastic way to give recognition to local volunteers.

�The Shire�s Thank a Volunteer Day is now a well-known event where local volunteers are thanked for their tireless service in our community,� she said.

The Shire last year received 54 nominations from 43 organisations.

A ceremony will be held in late November to honour the volunteers. Nominations close September 25, for more call 9290 6773.
