Inaugural Municipal Volunteer of the Year Awards

06 Dec 2021

The George Town Council Municipal Volunteer of the Year Award is a new award that Council has developed to coincide with International Volunteer Day that recognises the efforts of volunteers. The Award will be presented to an individual volunteer for their outstanding contribution to the community in the George Town municipal area.

On Friday the 3rd December at  Memorial Hall, Deputy Mayor Tim Harris surprised the dual winners Ivy Crowden and Rita Miller with their awards, and were  congratulated and celebrated by 50 guests. Both Rita and Ivy have contributed over 20 years each to volunteering in the George Town community. We thank them both for your selfless contribution and service to the community.  After the presentation attendees enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea and some social time.
We look forward to holding the  event next year, so make sure you get your nominations in.
