Celebrate Pioneers Week

During the week of October 31-November 6, Pioneers across North America will celebrate their commitment to build stronger communities through volunteerism. Included in Pioneers Week is Pioneers Day, celebrated on November 2nd. This year, November 2nd is very special to all Pioneers, as it marks the anniversary of the organization’s founding in 1911.

As we celebrate Pioneers Week, Pioneers recall a century of dedication to service, fellowship and loyalty, the principals on which we were founded. Through the contributions of hundreds of thousands of Pioneers members, past and present, these principals remain as important to Pioneers today as when we were founded 100 years ago. Pioneers Week is an excellent time to reflect on our heritage and recommit ourselves to improving the quality of life for all people, especially as we celebrate our Centennial.

Everyone is encouraged to participate in Pioneers Week by visiting the VolunteerNow! section of our site to find out what events are planned in their local community.

Happy Pioneers Week and thank you for improving the places we live and work.

Yours in Pioneering,
 
Jim Schmit
Chairman of the Board, Pioneers

Michael Sears
President, Canadian Pioneers
