This year's parade marshal is well known as someone who gives back to the community.
Margo Zwicker is this year's Privateer Days Parade Marshall.
The Privateer Days Parade Committee is pleased to announce that Margo Zwicker has been chosen as the honorary Parade Marshall. The parade goes through Liverpool on June 22 at 11 a.m.
The committee says they chose Margo, a lifelong resident of Charleston, because she exemplifies the very essence of community volunteerism. Her volunteer efforts span over 60 years, and has contributed to many organizations in the Region of Queens. Whether it is cooking a community breakfast, doing the finances, keeping the minutes or chairing the group, Margo has and continues to do it all.
Some of the organizations that have benefitted from Margo's volunteerism are the Charleston Baptist Church, Charleston Fire Department Auxiliary, the Medway Community Association, The Hank Snow Centre, Queens County Crime Prevention and the Liverpool Lions Club. Her volunteer efforts have won her several awards: Crime Prevention Award for services to the citizens of Nova Scotia, the provincial Volunteer of the Week award, and the Maritime of the Week Award presented by CTV's Live at Five program.
"It goes without saying that we are indeed fortunate to have a citizen with Margo's passion for community volunteering. Please be sure you take the opportunity to honour Margo during the Privateer Days Parade on June 22."
