Volunteer Appreciation BBQ

Kamloops, B.C. - Volunteers build, maintain and grow healthy communities. Help celebrate National Volunteer Week (April 15 – 21, 2012) by attending a Volunteer Appreciation BBQ hosted by the City of Kamloops.

Kamloops is a city that cares, being home to an extraordinary team of volunteers who support everything from tournament hosting to fundraising activities to city planning. During 2011’s Western Canada Summer Games, over 2300 Kamloopsians volunteered their time and efforts for this one event alone.

We’re proud of our volunteers. To show our appreciation for the hard work they do, the City is hosting this year’s BBQ:

Indoor and outdoor seating will be provided and door prizes will be drawn at 12:30 pm.

Please note that there is currently construction and road closures along Lorne Street. Residents are advised to access Interior Savings Centre via 3rd Avenue and to park in the north parking lot, located behind the arena.
