volunteerThe City of Owen Sound is pleased to announce Carol Parsons as the winner of our Volunteer of the Year and Nyah Way as the winner of the inaugural Youth Volunteer of the Year.

Carol Parsons is a tireless contributor in the Owen Sound community who has spent over 25 years as a key member with the Georgian Bay Folk Society, most recently serving as the event's co-chair and food and beverage coordinator. She was recently recognized provincially for her work by Festivals and Events Ontario, receiving its Volunteer of the Year award. Carol also lends her time to the Owen Sound Animal Shelter and G.R.A.C.E.

Nyah Way, a student at O.S.D.S.S. has become a fixture at the Owen Sound and North Grey Union Public Library, volunteering her time to assist in the coordination of adult and youth programming. Nyah also contributes to school programs, community day at Owen Sound Cineplex Galaxy Cinemas, Chinese Culture & Heritage Classes with May IP and as a Teen Advisory Group Member to ensure the Library is best serving youth in our community.

"Our community thrives on the generosity of its residents," said Mayor, Ian Boddy. "Both Carol and Nyah have shown commitment and generosity and we are fortunate to have them as leaders and contributors in our City."

The City of Owen Sound's Volunteer of the Year and Youth Volunteer of the Year Awards are selected through nominations submitted to the City's Community Services Committee.
