This week carrying on until April 21st is National Volunteers Week. The Nationwide campaign wants to shine the spotlight on the 12.7 million Canadians who donate their time free of charge. Whether you, a loved one or a friend volunteers, or you have been the benefactor of volunteer work, its safe to say that people donating their time is an essential piece to a successful community. Strathroy-Caradoc Mayor Joanne Vanderheyden has a message for all those who volunteer here in our community.
Vanderheyden, who continues to volunteer after 15 years at various different organizations says that when your work makes a real impact on someone's life, it provides a real sense of satisfaction that makes it all worth while.
