FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

Canada Day Volunteers Needed

North Grenville, ON – Preparations for this year’s Canada Day celebrations are well under way and the Canada Day Committee is looking for enthusiastic individuals who would like to lend a hand planning or helping with the celebrations. Opportunities include helping with kids games, set up/tear down, traffic control, entering a float in the parade, organizing new activities to add to the day, and more.

According to Councillor Frank Onasanya, Chair of Parks, Recreation and Culture, as much as the event will celebrate the country’s birthday, it also helps to bring people together. “We’re celebrating our country, our heritage, as well as our community. This event enhances community pride and spirit — we’re strengthening bonds of family and neighbours”.

The Municipality is looking for energetic volunteers to help make the event a success. “It’s a great way to build volunteer experience, get involved in your community, meet new people, and show your Canadian pride” said Tammy Hurlbert, who is working on behalf of the Municipality to coordinate the many volunteers and community partners. “It’s also a great opportunity for high school students to secure some or all of their required volunteer hours.”

Interested individuals, organizations and businesses who wish to help are asked to contact Tammy Hurlbert at  or 613-258-9569 ext.123.
