This week, the Kitchener Public Library is celebrating National Volunteer Week, April 6-12, 2014, a time to recognize and cherish Canada’s 13.3 million volunteers. I wanted to give a shout-out to our nearly 120 Soldier Card Project volunteers, without whom this project would not be possible.
Our SIC volunteers are a truly amazing group – full of passion, enthusiasm and commitment. To date, they have completed the following:
WWI transcriptions: 2,124
WWI biographies: 115
WWII transcriptions: 577
To our amazing volunteers, thank you!
Your stories of connection and resourcefulness continue to enrich the project. Everyday, your endeavours bring us closer to a fuller understanding of Waterloo County’s contribution to Canada’s military actions in the world wars.
