Gift to the Community


Please be advised, the County of Annapolis in cooperation with the Towns of Middleton and Annapolis Royal will be postponing the annual Annapolis County Volunteer Awards Ceremony scheduled for April 22nd at Kings Theatre, Annapolis Royal due the public health concerns surrounding the Pandemic and the COVID 19.  We will be taking the advice of NS Public Health.

We want to extend our congratulations to all our community volunteers on this well-deserved honour and look forward to recognizing over 40 community volunteers who have been nominated sometime in the future.

2020 Volunteer Award Congrats ad III

Volunteers are truly the heart of our towns, villages and communities across Annapolis County. These volunteers are people of all ages who have the common goal to make a difference in their communities and enrich their own life by giving up their own time and skill. Together they help to make our communities stronger, healthier and more vibrant. Volunteer efforts can be seen on a daily basis around Annapolis County, in our community halls, churches, hospital/health centre, schools, volunteer organizations, boards, sport and recreation groups and facilities.

National Volunteer Week - April 19 - 25, 2020

Each year, communities all across Canada pay tribute to the millions of volunteers who give themselves to better their communities and the organizations that rely on the lives of others. National Volunteer Week is a time for all of us to pause and celebrate the energy and commitment of volunteers. Volunteering is the lifeblood in our communities.
