Opportunities for Municipal Community Groups
It's not always easy to volunteer for a non-profit community group. Working long hours to fundraise money for projects, planning events and offering programs for everyone to enjoy, filling out paperwork, upgrading facilities, providing a much-needed service. It's of the Municipality's opinion that community groups need as much support as they can get!
