Celebrating Volunteers... at the Zoo!

Over 120 volunteers gathered at the Edmonton Valley Zoo on Thursday evening.
Fall colours at sundown - the setting was spectacular.
This was the annual Volunteer Appreciation Event in honour of Master Composter Recyclers and Reuse Centre volunteers. Folks enjoyed a bbq and toured the zoo grounds.
There were burgers, hot dogs, baked beans, salad, and a wide range of desserts.

And the food was good too... according to these smiles!
Councillor Michael Oshry brought greetings and thanks from City Council.
"Your volunteering provides excellent waste management services to Edmontonians," Leo Girard - Manager of Waste Management Services.

Four recent MCRs received special recognition for reaching their milestones of volunteering.
