Volunteer Development

Volunteer Recognition Dinner

Looking for a way to recognize that coach, trainer or volunteer that makes a difference in your community or child’s life?

Sport and recreation participants are asked to nominate coaches, trainers, fundraising volunteers, event volunteers and/or board members – any volunteer whose efforts contribute to enhancing active participation in sport or recreation in CKL.

The KLSRC will continue with the tradition of celebrating the efforts of all volunteers at the recognition dinner. Sport and recreation providers and stakeholders will be invited to attend the event at the Lindsay Golf and Country Club.

In 2017 at the volunteer recognition dinner, Pat Staneland (Kawartha Cycling Club), Patty Tomlinson (Bobcaygeon Skating Club), and Darryl Buttar (Lindsay Minor Hockey Association, Ops Minor Baseball, Central Ontario Wolves) were presented with Volunteer of the Year awards. Ops Minor Baseball was also recognized as Volunteer Organization of the Year for their positive culture of volunteerism and work to ensure accessibility for any child who wants to play.

The CKL community is also invited to submit nominations for the Volunteer Organization of the Year award. For the award, the KLSRC will consider organizations that demonstrate excellence in one or more of five core values: collaboration, communication, advocacy, inclusion, and physical literacy.

KLSRC is committed to the enhancement and promotion of sport, recreation and healthy active living opportunities for all residents of the City of Kawartha Lakes.
