If you’re looking for a way to say thank you to a hard working volunteer or community group, nominate them for the recognition they deserve.
Colchester County and the Town of Truro promote volunteerism by encouraging the nomination of individuals and groups to be recognized. Last year’s event saw an increased number of nominees, but we know there are many more throughout Colchester County and the Town of Truro. Take some time to think about volunteers that may be helping in your community and nominate them for this year’s event.
