Cape Breton Post - - NORTHSIDE/VICTORIA -

NORTH SYD­NEY — Cape Bre­ton North MLA Ce­cil Clarke is en­cour­ag­ing res­i­dents to cel­e­brate the spirit of com­mu­nity by nom­i­nat­ing a hard-work­ing lo­cal vol­un­teer for the 2010 Pro­vin­cial Vol­un­teer Awards.

Now in its 36th year, the cer­e­mony is hosted by Recre­ation Nova Sco­tia in con­junc­tion with Pro­vin­cial Vol­un­teer Week, and will take place at the Westin Nova Sco­tia on April 12. There, vol­un­teers rep­re­sent­ing com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions and grass­roots projects from across the prov­ince, will be rec­og­nized for do­nat­ing their time to build stronger neigh­bour­hoods.

“ This is an op­por­tu­nity to truly rec­og­nize and thank those who vol­un­teer their time to make in­cred­i­ble things hap­pen in our com­mu­ni­ties,” Clarke said Mon­day.

Nom­i­na­tion cat­e­gories in­clude youth, fam­ily, cor­po­rate and model com­mu­nity Vol­un­teers of the Year awards. Dead­line for sub­mis­sions is March 4, 2010.
