Volunteers are not paid - not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.

History of Volunteer Recognition in South Frontenac

Since 1999, the Township has presented awards to individuals who have provided outstanding volunteer service in the Township. Community volunteers play a vital role in enhancing the quality of life for the citizens of South Frontenac. The recipient (up to four per year) were nominated by peers for their contribution to the community.

In 2019, Council suggested a program refresh, as the number of nominations have been declining over the years. After hearing feedback from Council, the Recreation Committees, and other community members, a broader celebration recognizing the work of community volunteers has been developed.

Additionally, a youth volunteer recognition component has been established as Council recognizes that positive reinforcement for volunteerism has the potential to foster a life-long desire to give back to the community. This in turn can create a culture of engaged and motivated citizens for years to come. 

2019 Volunteer Appreciation

The 2019 Volunteer Recognition program did not take place in the spring as usual due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however Council recognizes the strength and resilience that makes South Frontenac a desirable community is largely due to our volunteers. Council received 38 nominations for Volunteer Recognition! Each nominee will received a mailed appreciation package and their names have been featured on our social media in the Frontenac News on December 3rd.

Be sure to view Council's volunteer appreciation video featured on our Facebook page

Once again- thank you to our community volunteers!
