Join us as we raise a glass to celebrate the volunteerism of Mike Kelloway who will be fresh back from Halifax where he's picking up a Provincial Volunteer Award (CBRM) as part of the province's kick off to National Volunteer Week.
Anyone that's worked with Mike knows he bring his full heart and effort
to the table. He's excited by ideas, he's fuelled by incredible teams and shared passions. The end result? There are many of us from a variety of organizations who are proud to see Mike recognized in this way. It's not just a wonderful recognition for a man who deserves it - it's an acknowledgement of the importance of the work being done by the teams Mike has been a part of over the years, and there have been many! Check out his ceremony bio below.
Come join us for a casual Open House at Breton Brewing on Wednesday, April 11 from 5 - 7. Pop in for a beer after work and watch Mike pretend to hate all the attention. ;)
Congratulations Mike. We're all very proud of you, and we thank you for sharing your talents and efforts is such a generous way for so many years. We know you're far from being done.
