April 21, 2021
16th Annual Spirit of Oliver Awards – 2020 Nominees
For the past 16 years Oliver has recognized individuals and groups with awards to applaud the outstanding volunteer contributions that they make to our community. The difficult decision was made to again postpone the annual award event to follow the Province wide restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as such the winners of the 2020 Spirit of Oliver awards will be announced at a later date.
The Spirit of Oliver Award Ceremony is normally held during Volunteer Week (April 18-24, 2021) in collaboration with Oliver Parks & Recreation. Although we are not able to gather to recognize all the nominees and make an announcement of the winners this week, we would instead like to recognize all the individuals and groups that have been nominated for a 2020 Spirit of Oliver Award for the outstanding contributions that they make to our community.
During these trying times it’s more important than ever to come together as a community and recognize individuals and groups that have been dedicated to making a difference in Oliver throughout 2020.
