Volunteering and the GWSA:
The Guelph Wellington Seniors Association was presented with the “Outstanding Achievement Award for Volunteerism in Ontario” by the Province of Ontario on November 8, 2005 at a ceremony in Kitchener. The outstanding volunteer achievement and dedication is what continues to make Evergreen the place to be.
The Evergreen Seniors Community Centre has over 500 volunteers who contribute their time to the many different activities, programs, services and special events year round.
The need for volunteers continues to grow and everyone is always welcome to apply for a volunteer position to join the dynamic team. People volunteer to get involved in their community; to give back; to meet new friends; to become familiar with their new neighbourhood; and learn new skills.
