Help celebrate Peninsula volunteers

Beacon Community Services Board Chair Bob Cronin is telling Peninsula residents to, “come one, come all” to the Hearts of the Community awards ceremony and free community luncheon to celebrate and honour Peninsula volunteers.

“This is a community thank you to the volunteers who help make this such a wonderful place to be. We want as many members of the community as possible to come and honour those volunteers at the Hearts of the Community Volunteer Awards ceremony on Feb.15,” said Cronin. “It’s a really wonderful, heart-warming ceremony, with fabulous entertainment by talented musicians and actors from Stelly’s secondary, good food, and a strong sense of community and caring.”

The event — which kicks off at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 15 at the Mary Winspear Centre — is co-sponsored by the Peninsula News Review and Beacon Community Services as part of the 13th annual Hearts of the Community Volunteer Awards.

Nominations for the awards for volunteer service closed Jan. 31. Award winners will be announced at the ceremony and will be profiled in the Feb. 16 issue of the Peninsula News Review.

Tickets are free but the theatre often fills for this event, said Cronin, so people are advised to get their tickets well ahead of time.

Free tickets are available now at the Peninsula News Review office, #6-9843 Second Street in Sidney, Beacon Community Services’ Third Street office in Sidney, or from any Beacon thrift shop in Sidney or Brentwood Bay.

Come out and celebrate the best of our community.
