We love all the volunteers who work hard to make East Hants an awesome place to live, work and play! Our Community Development Coordinator is here to serve you.

East Hants Municipal Volunteer Recognition

UPDATE – April 8, 2020:

Volunteers are the heartbeat of the community.  The strength and commitment that you and your fellow volunteers show in supporting our communities to become richer and stronger is important and second to none.

In past years we have held a Volunteer Recognition Ceremony to honour our Shining Stars for all of their hard work and dedication.  In light of concerns around the spread of Covid-19, the Municipality of East Hants is taking direction from public health and have decided to postpone the 2020 East Hants Municipal Volunteer Awards event until further notice. It is important that we all follow public health directives to protect the health and safety of our communities.

All nominees will be notified by a letter in the mail and will be kept up to date.

Contact us with any questions or concerns:
