Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community, so we are pleased to honour our local volunteers at a special appreciation event and luncheon on Saturday, November 19th from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm at the Storrington Lions Hall in Sunbury.

The event is open to all South Frontenac residents who have generously volunteered their time in the past year and is free to attend but tickets are required (plus-one’s welcome).  For more information or to reserve by phone, call Amanda at 613-376-3027 ext. 4447.

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 in the form of an annual Volunteer Appreciation Event. 

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.
