LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR REQUESTS NOMINATIONS FOR VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARDS

Lt.-Gov. Janice C. Filmon is requesting nominations for the Lieutenant Governor’s Volunteer Service Awards which are presented annually to six worthy individuals who represent the north, rural and urban areas of the province. The awards will be presented at the annual Volunteer Awards banquet held during volunteer week on April 25 at the RBC Convention Centre.

 

The awards recognize individuals who have embodied the spirit of volunteerism and have made a lasting and meaningful contribution to his or her community. The Lieutenant Governor’s Make a Difference Community 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 this 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.volunteerlocalhost:8888/manitobalg/www. Nominations must be received by February 10.
