Mayor Ed Mayne has proclaimed April 18 – 24 as Volunteer Week in the City of Parksville. 

“This past year, we have seen firsthand how people have supported family, friends, neighbours and strangers, all to the betterment of our community,” said Mayne. “We recognize the value of the caring and compassion that each one has shown another and recognize the power of people and organizations working together.”

The theme for National Volunteer Week 2021 is “the value of one, the power of many,” which the city said reflects on the acts of kindness by millions of individuals and what happens when people work together towards a common purpose. 

National Volunteer Week is an opportunity for the city to recognize the contributions of Parksville volunteers, the city said. 

“Our community programs rely on volunteers to donate their time to help others every single day. We thank and celebrate those people who care for others and who make a tremendous contribution by volunteering in our community,” reads a release from the city.
