Southold Town officials held a recognition ceremony last week to honor the more than 130 people who volunteer on various town government committees and departments.The town handed out plaques at the Human Resource Center in Mattituck for those who’ve donated their time to benefit the community.

“Southold benefits enormously from it residents who generously give their time and talents to make the Town an extraordinary place to live,” said Supervisor Scott Russell.

Volunteers are the driving force behind some of Southold Town’s greatest attributes, such as its fire departments, libraries and government committees, Mr. Russell said.

The event last Tuesday marked the town’s first-ever volunteer recognition ceremony, and was planned for during April, which is now National Volunteer Month.
