2013 Florence Gouthro Memorial Volunteer of the Year Recipient:

The Florence Gouthro Memorial Award is presented to the volunteer who exemplifies the true spirit of volunteerism. The Town is pleased to announce that Francis and Shirley MacMillan have been chosen as the Florence Gouthro Memorial Volunteers of the Year for 2013! Francis and Shirley will be attending the Provincial Volunteer Ceremony in Halifax this April.

Francis and Shirley MacMillan were instrumental in the success of the Town of Trenton’s Centennial Celebrations in 2011. Shirley was the driving force behind the recently established Heritage Room while Francis designed and coordinated a new entrance gate for Trenton Park. They are, by nature, a very giving and generous couple with volunteer efforts spanning decades including involvement with minor hockey, the Trenton Fire Department and Ladies Auxiliary, and Christ the King Church. Both Francis and Shirley are invaluable volunteers in our community. Thank you both for your continued dedication and great efforts put forth for the Town of Trenton!

Congratulations to all of our AMAZING nominees this year! Thank you for everything you do for our community!
