LEADING WOMEN, BUILDING COMMUNITIES

I was honoured on March 12, 2010 with the 2009 Ontario Award “Leading Women, Building Communities” which was presented to me at the Black River Cheese Factory in Milford, ON by Education Minister, Leona Dombrowsky, MPP.

The Award was given to 104 women across Ontario who showed “exceptional community leadership to improve the lives of women & girls in Ontario” as part of the government’s International Women’s Week celebration.

Ms. Dombrowsky is quoted as saying “she is a strong, talented, lovable, risk-taking woman.  She is a great promoter of the community and a great role model, especially for women”.  I sincerely appreciate your vote of confidence and am proud to be a part of this wonderful community in Prince Edward County, Ontario.

WOMEN IN BUSINESS

In December, I received the 2009 County Weekly News Women in Business Award in a field of 10 worthy r

ecipients from various business & service backgrounds.  “I don’t want to say I am unworthy of this because I wouldn’t want to risk offending my nominator & the people who selected me.  but this is such a fine group of women here, really, the community wins because of their involvement and I am so proud to be a part of that”.
