CAMPBELL'S BAY – The Elsie Gibbons Room of the MRC Pontiac headquarters was full of gratitude and appreciation, June 13, as the 18 municipalities paid tribute to some of the region's outstanding volunteers at the MRC's second annual volunteer recognition event. Mayors and councillors decided who would receive the awards in their respective municipalities: either an individual or group.
Warden Jane Toller described how essential volunteers are to the survival and success of communities, which was particularly demonstrated during the flooding crisis this year. “You could never put a price on [their contributions],” she said.   
Winners were invited to the front of the room where the mayor or a representative from each municipality described their volunteer work and why they were chosen. Recipients were then presented with a certificate and plaque. Many told a similar story about the person or group they had chosen for the award: they are selfless, don't believe they are doing anything noteworthy, and think there are others more deserving of the recognition. 
The recipients were: Alleyn-et-Cawood – Bethany Hall Committee; Bristol – Elaine Findlay; Bryson – Bryson RA; Campbell's Bay – Tim Ferrigan; Chichester – George Picard; Clarendon – Beryl Smart; Fort-Coulonge – Suzanne Vallières-Nollet; Ile-du-Grand-Calumet – Joan Derouin; Otter Lake – Janet Lafleur; L'Isle-aux-Allumettes – Helen Davis; Litchfield – Vera Rutledge Mayor; Mansfield – all residents of Mansfield in light of the recent flooding; Portage-du-Fort – Artistes de la Rivière; Rapides-des-Joachims – Paul Andre Paquette; Shawville – Shawville and District RA; Sheenboro – Bill and Anita Sawyer; Thorne – Frieda Crows; and Waltham – all of the volunteers from the entire Pontiac who helped with the flooding efforts.
A light lunch concluded the event.
