Outstanding Volunteers’ Breakfast 2017

For those that missed it, back on Tuesday December 5 2017 the Shire held it’s annual Outstanding Volunteers’ Breakfast to coincide with celebrations for International Volunteers’ Day.

One hundred volunteers from across the Shire of Capel arrived at the Elgin Hall to assist, and assist they did with conversation and consumption of the wonderful buffet breakfast.

As the volunteers entered the Hall, a smiling usher who set the tone of enjoyment and banter greeted them. The Elgin Hall was bustling with joviality, from people rekindling friendships and forming new networks.

Toni Steinbrenner and Win Savage gave a presentation about the Capel Country Womens Association and their recent SHOUT Retro Blast event.

Mr Michael Tichbon gave a heart-warming speech when he was presented with a WA Volunteer Service Award for 25 plus years of service to the Capel Land Conservation District Committee.

The Department of Communities, the Capel Community Bank Branch of the Bendigo Bank and the Shire of Capel proudly supported the Shire’s Outstanding Volunteers’ Breakfast for 2017, with the aim of honouring valuable members of service groups, sporting bodies and community groups for their dedicated community involvement.
