The Vernon Public Art Gallery will host the third annual Volunteer Appreciation Event in partnership with the Vernon Volunteer Bureau.
The event, which is today from 1 to 3 p.m., is open to all not-for-profit organizations who wish to give a special thanks to the volunteers who play such an important role in our community.
“As a charitable organization that relies heavily on volunteers, it only made sense to provide the facility for a community-wide volunteer appreciation event,” said Dauna Kennedy Grant, VPAG executive director.
The guest speaker will be Juliette Cunningham, a Vernon city councillor.
The event will be catered by Fig Catering and volunteers can relax and enjoy an afternoon of music, snacks and refreshments.
The cost to participating agencies is $2.50 per volunteer. For more information and to register your volunteers, contact the gallery in advance at 250-545-3173, email@example.com
