Volunteers heart of Wanneroo heritage
Published Friday, 11th September 2015
Volunteers who give their time to deliver programs at the City’s heritage sites and libraries will be celebrated at an appreciation function tonight.
Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said the City held four appreciation functions a year to acknowledge emergency services and firefighting volunteers as well as heritage, libraries, community and conservation volunteers.
“We are so proud of all of our volunteers and host these events as a small thank you for the tireless service each and every one provides to our community day in and day out,” she said.
“The City’s volunteer appreciation functions are always a highlight of our civic events calendar.
“More than 500 community members volunteer across our City.
“Some of our volunteers have been working for the community for more than 15 years and their tireless contribution does not go unrecognised by the City.”
Functions held this year include the community and conservation appreciation function in February, the emergency services and firefighting volunteer functions both held in June and lastly the heritage and libraries function on 11 September.
“I am sure the community support this gesture of thanking all of our volunteers for their commitment and contribution,” Mayor Roberts said.
Tonight’s event will recognise volunteers from Cockman House, Buckingham House, the Community History Centre, Wanneroo Regional Museum, the Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre Gallery, Friday at the Flicks program and the City’s four libraries with the presentation of awards for individuals.
