WINNIPEG, MB - Do you know someone, a family member, coach, or volunteer you feels makes a difference in the community? Nominate them for the the Lieutenant Governor’s Make a Difference Community Awards.
Lt.-Gov. Janice C. Filmon is requesting nominations for the awards, which are presented annually to six deserving individuals from across the province. The awards will be presented at the 35th Annual Volunteer Awards banquet on April 19 at the Victoria Inn and Conference Centre in Winnipeg.
The awards recognize individuals who embody the spirit of volunteerism and have made lasting and meaningful contributions in the community. The Lieutenant Governor’s Vice-Regal Volunteer Award will be presented to one overall winner who best represents these qualities of volunteerism.
This award was originally established by former lieutenant-governor Peter M. Liba in 2000 and has been supported by all lieutenant-governors who followed.
“Our province is blessed to be rich with the spirit of volunteerism. In every community large and small, Manitobans give so much of their time, talent and creativity to impact and enrich the lives of others, and make a difference in their communities and around the world,” said Filmon. “I encourage you to recognize a worthy volunteer by nominating them for this award.”
To nominate an outstanding volunteer go to www.volunteermanitoba.ca/awards. Nominations must be received by Feb. 9.
