Volunteer Recognition 2013

Communities across Canada celebrate National Volunteer Week every year!

National Volunteer Week 2017 will take place the week of April 23 to April 29, 2017.

The Town of Trenton holds an annual Volunteer Recognition Reception to honor the many community groups and their volunteers who serve the residents of Trenton, and to provide an opportunity for community and sport organizations to recognize their outstanding volunteers. The 2017 reception will be held on Wednesday, April 26, 2017.

In addition to the local organizations and community groups, the nomination process is also open to the general public. This open call for nominations is County wide; however, the nominee must be a volunteer who is serving/impacting Trenton in some way.

Once the nominations are received, a selection committee will choose the 2017 Florence Gouthro Memorial Volunteer of the Year Recipient. This volunteer will attend the 43rd Annual Provincial Volunteer Awards Ceremony being held in Halifax on Tuesday, April 18, 2017. All volunteers must be nominated separately to be considered for this award.

Thank you for your interest, the 2017 Nomination Process is now CLOSED!

2012 Florence Gouthro Memorial Volunteer of the Year Recipient

2012 Volunteer of the Year

Mayor MacKinnon & members of the Gouthro Family present the 2012 Volunteer of the Year Award to Dianne Williams.


Dianne Williams has spent the last 30 years with the Trenton Block Parents Association. During that time, she has done much to help her community. She did presentations for the local schools including educating the elementary students on the Black Parents Association and how to locate a safe home if they ever needed help of any kind. She also volunteered to do the first anti-bullying program lecture in the Trenton Middle School. For 15 years, she was active as the associations’ secretary and police liaison serving as the organizations spokesperson if they had any concerns that needed police attention. Dianne volunteered with the local police bike rodeo in Trenton to make sure the children had safe helmets, reflectors, breaks and horns. Local children learned how to maneuver their bikes correctly, drive on the street safely and make sure their equipment was in good condition. For the last 5 years, Dianne has been a Member at Large with the Nova Scotia Block Parent Advisory Board. She has attended annual conventions for the association and hosted the 30 year anniversary of the Trenton Block Parents. She is also involved with crime prevention and Crime Stoppers. The community would like to thank Dianne Williams for her three decades of incredible commitment and efforts in making Trenton a safer place to live!


Congratulations to all of our AMAZING nominees this year! Thank you for everything you do for our community!
