Volunteers

Volunteer Appreciation

Hanna has always taken pride in having a very strong and involved community. Many of the programs and activities offered in the community would not be available if it weren’t for the many hours of time, commitment and expertise of volunteers.

Each spring, the Town of Hanna through Community Services and Hanna FCSS, hosts an event to appreciate local volunteers.  This event is always well attended and appreciated by those who attend.
