Oakville’s most inspiring volunteers were celebrated for their exemplary contributions to the community at the 15th Annual Community Spirit Awards held last night at Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre.
“On behalf of Council, I congratulate both the nominees and recipients of the Community Spirit Awards,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “Oakville’s volunteer participation rate is consistently above the provincial and national averages. Our town is a better, more livable place for their commitment and dedication.”
Chris Mei, television host of the Weather Network, was the emcee for the evening, entertaining the audience while sponsors handed out the awards. Each recipient received a one-of-a-kind award designed by local furniture and wood-working artists Joseph Bauman and Dayna Gedney.
Since 2002, Oakville’s Community Spirit Awards have recognized individuals and groups for their outstanding contributions to the community. Visit the Oakville Community Spirit Awards page for more details.
