2014 Roll of Honor
Here's your opportunity to publicly thank those volunteers who spent 500+ hours ensuring your services were available to the community. Everyone of them can be added to the Roll of Honor providing you can document their time during 2013. As recognition, their name is published in the news so neighbors can join in saying "Thanks," each one gets a certificate, and they are recognized in a listing on VolunteerMaine.org.
