Township of Langley’s volunteer appreciation event postponed for 2020

Spokesperson said volunteers will be notified and recognized for their efforts individually

Township of Langley has announced, due to COVID-19, that their annual Langley’s Volunteer Appreciation event will not be held this year.

Sarah Regehr, special events coordinator with the Township of Langley, confirmed in a statement that the event would not be going ahead.

“With the ongoing restrictions surrounding large group gatherings, regrettably, we will be unable to re-schedule the Township of Langley’s Volunteer Appreciation event for 2020,” she said. “This year’s volunteer award winners will be notified and recognized for their incredible efforts individually. Thank you for your understanding.”

Hundreds gathered in April of 2019 at the Langley Events Centre for the last Township appreciation event where residents who assist those in need, care for the environment, encourage active lifestyles, support children and seniors, and enhance quality of life within the community were treated to dinner, entertainment, and special presentations.
