Four members of the community were recognized for their outstanding contributions to the region.
During National Volunteer Appreciation Week, Brant recognized four people who were nominated by the community for demonstrating decades of volunteerism from thousands who are equally committed to the community.
The Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Volunteerism were presented at the Brantford Golf and Country Club on April 16th in front of an audience of over 200 supporters. As a part of the award, a legacy fund is established in honour of each recipient through fundraising by the award committee. Legacy funds are administered by the Brant Community Foundation.
The Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Volunteerism recognizes local individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to our communities through volunteerism and preserves a legacy for those who have tirelessly given of themselves for the betterment of others. Awarded annually to up to four residents from the City of Brantford, County of Brant, Six Nations of the Grand River Territory and Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation.
A series of heart-warming video testimonials, by Digital Duck Productions, can be seen by clicking on each of the photographs.
