It was a beautiful day for the crowd at our volunteer appreciation BBQ and Ontario Trillium Foundation grant announcement! The event started at 4:30 pm with the OTF announcement by Todd Smith, MPP Prince Edward-Hastings, and OFT volunteer Deanna Dulmage. Valerie Watts, Constituency Manager for Mike Bossio, MP Hastings Lennox and Addington was also on hand bring greetings and offer congratulations. The 2 year OTF grant was awarded in 2015 to fund the hiring of a full-time volunteer coordinator and increase volunteerism in the community.
Two awards were presented directly after the OTF announcement. Volunteer Gary Sopaz received a certificate and letter from Habitat Canada recognizing him as Habitat PEH’s volunteer of the year for 2015. Gary is currently a board member, sits on two committees, and is a weekly volunteer at each Habitat build. Volunteer Juerg Roth was presented with a Habitat hammer plaque to recognize his outstanding contribution to the construction of the 2 Trenton homes in 2015 and 2 Belleville homes in 2015-2016.
Directly after the presentations, the crowd was treated to a delicious meal including pulled pork on a bun catered by BarbecuePartyInABox.
