2019 Volunteer Recognition Celebration
National Volunteer Week was celebrated on 20–26 May 2019. This year’s theme was ‘Making a World of Difference'.
Volunteers are one of the most important resources that our City has. Their generosity contributes towards creating a strong community and the City is truly grateful for their hard work and determination.
During National Volunteer Week, the City’s four libraries ran workshops and made gifts for local Rockingham volunteers. This included kokedama arrangements, mini floral posies, mini succulent gardens and card making.
The 2019 Volunteer Recognition Celebration was held on Thursday 23 May 2019 at the Gary Holland Community Centre. The celebration recognised those volunteers who were nominated by their local organisations. Organisations were requested to nominate one dedicated volunteer to attend the celebration as a way to acknowledge and demonstrate appreciation for the commitment they and their organisation show to the Rockingham community. Fifty-four nominations were received during the nomination period. Check out the gallery below for pictures of the nominated volunteers.
