VOLUNTEER OTTAWA AWARDS CEREMONY

VOLUNTEERS.    THERE ARE THE UNSUNG HEROES OF OUR COMMUNITY. THOUSANDS OF INDIVIDUALS, CORPORATIONS AND CHARITIES WORK EVERY DAY TO ENSURE THEY MAKE LIFE A LITTLE BETTER FOR PEOPLE WHO NEED HELP.  MOST OF THE TIME THEY WORK 

BEHIND THE  SCENES LENDING A HAND WITHOUT ANY EXPECTATION OF RECOGNITION.  

THE ORGANIZATION THAT OVERSEES THIS DEDICATED GROUP IS CALLED VOLUNTEER OTTAWA. AND ONCE A YEAR IT THROWS AN AWARDS CEREMONY - TO SHINE A LITTLE SPOTLIGHT ON PEOPLE AND GROUPS WHO SHOULD BE THANKED. THIS YEAR THE AWARDS CEREMONY WAS AT CITY HALL DURING VOLUNTEER WEEK.  I HAD THE PLEASURE OF EMCEEING THE EVENT.
