Wanneroo Times - - Wanneroo Link -

Con­ser­va­tion and com­mu­nity ser­vices vol­un­teers have been ac­knowl­edged for their in­cred­i­ble con­tri­bu­tion to the City of Wan­neroo.

More than 125 vol­un­teers were in­vited to a vol­un­teer ap­pre­ci­a­tion din­ner to recog­nise their ser­vices. Mayor Tracey Roberts ad­dressed the group, thank­ing them for their ef­forts. “We are very for­tu­nate to have so many kind and gen­er­ous peo­ple in our com­mu­nity, will­ing to give up their time to help oth­ers and our en­vi­ron­ment,” Mayor Roberts said. “On be­half of the City of Wan­neroo, I sin­cerely thank all of our vol­un­teers and hope they know just how much they are ap­pre­ci­ated.” Sev­eral peo­ple were also high­lighted for go­ing above and be­yond the call of duty, pre­sented with Vol­un­teer Ex­cel­lence Awards.
