The Town is so fortunate to have so many volunteers who give their skills, time and expertise willingly. This celebration is a way for us all to come together to celebrate all they do for the betterment of the community.
Town of Claremont has celebrated International Volunteer Day by holding Thank a Volunteer Day Celebration at the Claremont Museum recognising the hard work and dedication of those people who give their time and expertise in a voluntary capacity.
The Town’s volunteers provide a range of services to the community from delivering books to pulling weeds and planting trees to classifying historical photographs and artefacts.
Mayor Jock Barker said, “Our volunteers play a vital role in helping our community. We are very fortunate to have so many people who give their time and expertise tirelessly to the Town and the community.”
“At the Claremont Community Hub & Library, 20 volunteers have contributed 490 hours of their time helping people explore their family tree, hosting foreign language conversations sessions and teaching library patrons how to use computers, tablets and mobile devices.
The flora and fauna of Claremont Lake also benefits from the enormous contribution given by the Friends of Lake Claremont in planting, weeding and preserving this beautiful space for the whole community to enjoy.”
“I am extremely proud of the services and programs the Town provides to the community and I would like to acknowledge that this would not be possible without the generosity of our volunteers. This event is the Town’s opportunity to recognise and thank all those who make Claremont the wonderful place it is to live.”
The Town paid tribute to the Department of Communities for the Thank a Volunteer Day grant which assisted the Town to provide a function which gave the opportunity for volunteers to come together, enjoy themselves and see the fantastic work the various organisations have delivered within the last year.
