2018 Volunteer Roll of Honor

logo for GSA program

In 2017, the Maine volunteers listed below devoted 500 or more hours to serving their community. To put this in perspective, the average adult volunteer in Maine spends 37 hours serving through local programs.

Since 1986, Maine volunteer programs leaders have submitted the names of their most dedicated volunteers to be added to this Roll of Honor.  

Through the generosity of the Bangor Daily News and Portland Sea Dogs,  the Governor's Awards for Service and Volunteerism program is able to publicly recognize the commitment of these Maine people.

Thank you, Roll of Honor Sponsors!
