The East Kawartha Chamber of Commerce presented their annual Awards of Excellence at Viamede Conference Resort on November 20th. Their volunteerism award was presented to Cathy Romano.

Here’s an excerpt from the presentation:

This year’s winner of the volunteerism award has been involved with a number of initiatives – from school council to community fundraising events to volunteering as Health Care Coordinator at Camp Kawartha. In some months the Health Care role amounts to fulltime hours. It involves recruiting nurses and providing orientation, delivering first aid training to all staff, ordering supplies for and stocking the Health Care centre, preparing tripping packs and many hours of preparation before and after the Camp season. She also assists with fundraising events and is currently Vice-President of their Board. Her nominator notes that, “She pours her heart into everything she does for the Camp, and we are very privileged to have her as a volunteer!”
