Celebrate Volunteers!

We believe in celebrating the great work done by our local volunteers. Each April during Volunteer Week, we host a special reception to thank our volunteers. Volunteer Week in 2018 will be from April 15 - 21, 2018.

The Municipality of Chester is taking time during Volunteer Week to celebrate the tremendous efforts of our local volunteers. Every day volunteers give of their time and energy to the community and it is these volunteer efforts that make our communities strong and vibrant.

We would like every community group in the Municipality to nominate one volunteer from their group to be recognized at the Municipality of Chester Volunteer Awards Ceremony to be held during national volunteer week in April. From all the nominations, one individual will be selected to represent the Municipality of Chester at the Provincial Awards Ceremony in Halifax. Please submit your nomination by the deadline of Friday, January 26, 2018. The Province also recognizes an outstanding Youth and Family so if you know someone in the community who should be nominated in one of those categories, send in a completed form.
