2018 Volunteer Recognition Event

This annual luncheon is about celebrating and acknowledging the amazing volunteers we have in Coorong district.

The event is held during Volunteer Recognition Week and is held in different locations across the council area.

The Coorong District Council recognises the valuable contribution of volunteers in our district and the input they have had on a range of projects in our district including walking trail development, social wellbeing activities, facility maintenance and development, transport and delivery of critical services in rural areas such as CFS and SAAS.

Council proudly commits to celebrating the work and success of our volunteers at its annual Volunteer Recognition Event.

In addition to this, Council recently created the inaugural Unsung Hero Award in 2017, whereby members of the community were asked to nominate one of their peers who “makes your community a better place to live”.
