HWHA Heritage Volunteer Recognition Certificates

A recognition program was initiated on Heritage Day 1989 to provide opportunities for member organizations to honour individuals for their special service.  The certificates are now presented at the at the City of Hamilton Heritage Volunteer Service Awards ceremony during National Volunteer Week.  
Member organizations may request an HWHA Volunteer Recognition Certificate for an individual at any time, thus enabling a recognition to be part of any special occasion.  
The certificate reads:

For outstanding contributions to the understanding and preservation of our
History and Heritage.

 

 

HWHA Heritage Volunteer Recognition Certificates will be presented at the City of Hamilton Heritage Volunteer Service Awards Ceremony. This ceremony will take place during National Volunteer Week on Saturday, April 20, 2024 at 1 pm, at the Coach House at Dundurn Castle.
