Tecumseh Recognizes Award Recipients

Organizations across Canada celebrate volunteers during National Volunteer Week (NVW) from April 24 to 30, 2022. This annual celebration is a time to thank and recognize volunteers from coast to coast. This year’s theme, Volunteering is Empathy in Action, highlights how this profoundly human connection is at the heart of healthier individuals and stronger communities.

The Town of Tecumseh is celebrating residents who have displayed dedication and an unselfish desire to help others and assist those in need. At the April 26 regular meeting of council, the Mayor and Members of Council will be recognizing five Tecumseh residents with awards for their volunteerism and community service:

  • Edward Janisse – 2021 Donald “Donny” Massender Memorial Volunteer Award
  • Anita Imperioli – 2021 Dr. Henri Breault Community Excellence Award
  • Lynda Lacombe – 2022 Senior of the Year Award
  • Jocelyn Adams – 2022 Youth of the Year Award
  • Teanna Kavanagh – 2021 Youth of the Year Award

The public is encouraged to watch the award presentation at tomorrow’s regular meeting, starting at 7 p.m., via livestream at https://video.isilive.ca/tecumseh/live.html.

“Our volunteers are the heroes and the heart of our community,” said Gary McNamara, Mayor of Tecumseh. “These individuals devote their time giving back and serving the community. As well, our many volunteers who serve on Town boards and committees and as Snow and Leaf Angels – your hard work and dedication is remarkable.”

The Town extends gratitude to the many volunteers for their significant contributions to the community.
