2012 Community Tour: Celebrating the Strength of Communities
Volunteers & Co-ops
Farmers, cooperatives, credit unions and volunteer groups celebrate those who give their hearts, time and skills to strengthen our communities.
At each major stop we announced a local volunteer who will be rewarded with an Alaskan cruise vacation on board the Celebrity Cruise® Infinity! This was an opportunity for us to honor a member of the community who has donated their time and efforts on behalf of others.
The 2012 Community Tour was created by Cabot Creamery Cooperative and its fellow sponsors and supporters, including: 2012 International Year of Cooperatives, AARP Create The Good, Credit Union National Association (CUNA), East Coast Greenway Alliance (ECGA), Hands On Network, Marriott and National Life Group.
