Aren’t we a handsome group? The Training and Consulting volunteers of the United Way of Oakville were up for a 2009 Community Spirit Award. Held on June 17 at the fabulous Oakville Conference and Banquet Centre the awards got underway with a welcome from Mayor Rob Burton. MC for the night was the Weather Network’s Chris Mei who did a really outstanding job of keeping the event moving while taking sufficient time to honour those selected to receive this community tribute.
The UW of Oakville training and consulting volunteers lost out to the very deserving Young Achievers of Halton group who were obviously thrilled to be choosen.
The UW volunteers provide relevant, top-notch workshops to many of Oakville’s non-profit staff and volunteers. For example, later this fall I’m going to conduct a workshop on how to use social media to raise money and find new volunteers for non-profit and charitable agencies.
