2018 Volunteer Recognition

Each year the PMFRC celebrates and appreciates our volunteers: the backbone of our communities. The PMFRC is fortunate to have so many skilled, motivated, and -- above all -- selfless people who step up, day after day, to show their commitment to helping military families in our community. 

With the help of a generous donation by CANEX, our Youth Volunteer Appreciation Party is organized each year to say "thank you" to our PSP and PMFRC youth volunteers. Our youth volunteers support us all year by helping us at events like the Garrison Family Day and much more. So on April 17 we honoured them with a taco buffet, carnival games, gift baskets and movie tickets. Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers!

Alyssa is a great example of a youth volunteer with dedication and a very positive work ethic. She regularly supports the PMFRC during special events and is excited to have the opportunity to work on acquiring new skills like photography.

Alyssa shares the spirit of volunteering by recruiting her friends whenever she can. With her passion, friendliness and patience she is generating positive change for others in our community. Thank you for making a difference!



On May 25, PSP and PMFRC got together to host their Annual Volunteer Appreciation Event. This event is a way to say thank you to all of the people who donate their time and talents to support military members and their families. Over the past year, PMFRC and PSP volunteers have contributed more than 10,000 hours!

The PMFRC Award of Merit 2018 goes to Meghan Uzenko to recognize her outstanding dedication and commitment to the PMFRC. Meghan comes in every week without fail to volunteer as admin support. She is reliable, proactive, pays attention to detail and is always friendly and great to work with. Our staff really enjoy being around her and truly appreciate all that she does for the team. We recognize and acknowledge one of our amazing “behind-the-scenes” volunteers Meghan for the impact that her efforts have on the PMFRC, staff and families she serves.

The PMFRC Volunteer of the Year 2018 Award goes to Nicole Gaudet to recognize her outstanding contributions as a PMFRC Volunteer. Nicole has no limitation and is very generous with her time. She has volunteered at almost every PMFRC event during the past year as a face painter, activity supervisor, balloon animal artist, muscle team, decorator, cook, or baker and didn’t even hesitate to help us out in the cold rain making Maple taffy at Winter Family Festival. She is extremely dependable, hard-working, intelligent, and multi-talented. Congratulations!

Congratulations and thank you to all of the volunteers whose dedication has such a great impact on our programs and helps to improve the quality of life for our military families.
