Inverness County to Celebrate Volunteers in May

INVERNESS COUNTY, N.S. – The Municipality of the County of Inverness is calling for residents to nominate dedicated volunteers that deserve recognition during its annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner to take place on May 13th, 2020.

Organizations and individuals are encouraged to nominate deserving volunteers who have made a significant impact in service of their community this past year. The early-bird deadline for nominations is February 21st, but nominations are accepted until April 24th. Names of all early-bird nominees will be put in a draw to have a chance to represent Inverness County at the Provincial Volunteer Recognition Ceremony in Halifax on April 27th, 2020.

“Every community across the County has seen volunteers accomplish some extraordinary work this year,” said Betty Ann MacQuarrie, Warden of the Municipality of the County of Inverness. “From selflessly helping others in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, to organizing countless festivals and events that draw visitors from around the globe and everything in between, volunteers make Inverness County such a great place to live.”

55 volunteers were recognized last year, and the Municipality hopes to celebrate as many or more in 2020. To nominate someone today, visit or contact Lisa Organ at
