Winners of the First Annual Volunteer Photo Contest

Over the month of November, as part of our first annual Volunteer Photo Contest, islanders were encouraged to submit photos of community volunteers in action.  This initiative was brought forth as a partnership between Volunteer and Community Resources (VCR) and the Royal Canadian Legion (Branch #92)  We were excited to receive 45 entries of volunteers making an impact in many different realms of community life.  We are pleased to announce the following winners:
