Nominations are open for the 30th annual Volunteer Awards, being presented in April by Volunteer Manitoba and Manitoba Lotteries.
Mayor Sam Katz and Volunteer Manitoba president Donn Pirie kicked off preparations for the awards on Monday. Katz will serve as honourary chair next year, a role previously held by former Mayor Bill Norrie.
The awards celebrate Manitobans who have made a contribution to their community through volunteerism.
Nominations can be made through VolunteerManitoba.ca, or through SamKatz.ca for the Mayor’s Volunteer Service Award.
Awards will be given out during a gala event at the Winnipeg Convention Centre on Wednesday, April 24, 2013.
