Amabile “Volunteer Service Award” recipients!

Happy National Volunteer Week and Thank You for supporting Amabile Choirs! Congratulations also to the Amabile Choirs volunteers who were awarded with an Ontario Volunteer Service Award (OVSA) this spring for their commitment to making great music!

The Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration annually honours volunteers who provide committed and dedicated service to an organization.  The awards were presented at a special ceremony Friday March 17,2016 at the Hellenic Community Centre.

Guest Speaker for the two evening ceremonies was Amabile Choirs Funds Development Officer Chris Harding.

Pictured are (L to R) Emmcee Luke Vincent, Program Lead with Ministry of Culture and Immigration, MPP Peggy Sattler, Tammy Rees AYS and Prima volunteer,  RJ Escuadro a Youth volunteer with the Boys and Men’s Choirs, Heidi Proprotnik AYS and Prima volunteer and Deputy Premier Deb Matthews.

Thank You and Congratulations also to Angie Jewlal (ABMC volunteer), Jennifer Swan (JAS volunteer) Alice Tschen (AYS volunteer) and Karen Glajch (ABMC volunteer) who were unable to attend the ceremony and will receive their Certificates of Honour and Ontario Government lapel pins at a later date.

Congratulations to all of our Amabile volunteers, and thank you for donating your time, talents and skills to Amabile!
