Volunteer Opportunities “Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” Howard Zinn
Since the Buckhorn Community Centre provides a wide range of programs and services, there are many Volunteer opportunities you can choose from, including:
- supporting fundraising events (we have seven major fundraising events during the year)
- supporting community events such as youth activities, senior activities, sporting activities
- providing office administration duties
- serving on committees (such as Building & Site Maintenance, Beautification)
- serving on the Board of Directors
Each year we recognize the contributions of our many Volunteers, now over 300, at our annual Volunteer dinner event. This is a wonderful opportunity for Volunteers to come together and be thanked, to connect with other Volunteers and to hear about the impact of their support to the Buckhorn Community Centre. At this event we honour a Volunteer with the presentation of the Founders Award. This award is for anyone who exemplifies the mission of the BCC.
Since it was not possible to safely have a large, indoor celebration, the BCC conducted 3 porch ceremonies. The recipients were: John and Irene Bannan, Michael and Ellen Dumas as well as Don and Shirley Logan. These volunteers were presented with a certificate for lifetime contributions and a handmade door wreath. Their names will be added to the Founder’s Cup which is proudly displayed in a cabinet inside the main door of the BCC.
“The vision these folks had for a community centre with recreational and sports programs, as well as cultural and social events continues to inspire the BCC today,” says Bill Kent, President of the Board of Directors. “All three couples made significant contributions to the BCC and we are very grateful for their incredible long-term support. We sincerely thank each one of them for putting their stamp on our community centre.” You can view the full press release HERE
