Student volunteers who worked as buddies in the Lions Club Special Needs program, part of the Kincardine Recreation Department's summer playground program, were honoured at an appreciation event Tuesday morning at the Davidson Centre.

Each student received a certificate, a list of his/her volunteer hours, and enjoyed an ice cream sundae.

Program co-ordinator Erin Peister said there 80 volunteers this year, completing 4,000 hours during the summer.

"That's the most we've ever had," she said. "Last year, we had 60 volunteers."
