City honours outstanding long-term care volunteers
At a ceremony at Toronto City Hall, Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday (Ward 3 Etobicoke Centre), on behalf of Mayor Rob Ford, will honour volunteers who have improved the lives of residents of the City of Toronto's 10 directly operated long-term care homes by generously donating their time, energy and skills. Twelve awards will be presented to groups and individuals from every part of the city.

Date: Monday, April 11
Time: 10:30 a.m.
Location: Members Lounge, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W.

These volunteers visit residents and support a wide range of services, including arts and gardening programs, therapeutic activities, cultural and religious activities and special events. Each year, the Mary Ellen Glover Award is also presented to a resident who makes a positive difference for fellow residents through leadership activities.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city.
