This afternoon Eastern Volunteers, as part of National Volunteer Week held its Volunteer Recognition Function to acknowledge the commitment and dedication of their many volunteers.

Eastern Volunteers, which covers the areas of Maroondah, Whitehorse and the Shire of Yarra Ranges, provides transport services or for the frail aged and people with disabilities as well as recruiting volunteers for over 350 community organisations.

The slogan for this year’s Volunteer Week is Volunteers Change the World! which recognises the important and positive contribution that volunteers deliver for the community and I would like to congratulate the many volunteers that dedicate their time to improving life within Maroondah.
