Let’s celebrate Barrie-Innisfil volunteers during National Volunteer Week from April 24 to 30. This year’s theme is Empathy in Action and I see examples of this every day as the generosity of volunteers creates  builds a stronger community.

Canada is also celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty
Queen Elizabeth II in 2022, marking her 70th anniversary on the Throne.

In recognition, I have created a Barrie-Innisfil commemorative coin that I will present to volunteers throughout April.

From coast to coast to coast in formal and informal settings, are helping others. During National Volunteer Week 2022, we celebrate the contributions of Canada’s millions of volunteers: their actions, their understanding, and their genuine concern for the world around them.

And to all the volunteers out there, thank you for helping others and  giving your time and skills to Barrie-Innisfil. Thank you and keep up the good work.
