National Volunteer Week

There has been little heard on the media but this is National Volunteer Week. According to Volunteer Canada, there are 12.5 million of us across the county "on all fronts: community health care, sports and recreation, heritage and arts, environmental protection & advocacy, disaster relief, international development, and volunteer firefighting – the list is endless. The work of volunteers is essential to maintaining resilient communities at home and around the world."

If you would like to thank a volunteer, you can use the website at http://volunteer.ca/nvw to send an e-Card.

Better still, why don't you become a volunteer? We would be more than glad to share the load of running our organizations and sharing our hobby. After all, there are still over 22 million who are not volunteering. You can make a difference and you will feel better for helping others move ahead in the hobby. Every little bit helps.
