Happy volunteer week

During National Volunteer Week, April 6th to 12th, I would like to send a heartfelt thank-you to everyone who volunteers in our community.
Volunteers provide an outstanding example of selflessness that others can look up to, and are the foundation of the strength in our community.  They are the people who we turn to in a time in need; they are neighbours who support us, and the courageous that fight for us. 
This is a time to celebrate those dedicated volunteers who give to make this the kind and supportive community we know it to be.
I especially would like to thank those I work directly with at the Canadian Cancer Society.  You are among our most valuable ambassadors and assets, and continue to be at the heart of the Canadian Cancer Society.
Happy National Volunteer Week!
