Join the Municipality of Inverness County in celebrating this year’s outstanding community volunteers.

This week’s featured volunteer is Neil MacQuarrie, who will be representing Inverness County at the 50th Annual Provincial Volunteer Awards Celebration in September. Neil has been volunteering in a variety of capacities within Inverness County for over 25 years. We are proud to have Neil represent Inverness County, as he exemplifies the true meaning of volunteerism.

Neil is president of Inverness Taekwondo, a member of the executive of Inverness Minor Basketball, president of the Inverness Arena, member of the Inverness Legion, an Inverness Minor Hockey coach, and an Inverness Minor Baseball coach.

These community groups and organizations would not run as well as they do or possibly not happen at all without Neil’s community spirit, commitment, dedication, and leadership.

We thank you, Neil for all you do to help make Inverness County a better place to live, work and play!

Congratulations!

(Neil was nominated by Inverness resident, Phil Blackwood)
