Kathryn McGarry, MPP for Cambridge is pleased to announce that Sue Sturdy of Cambridge has received a “Cambridge Celebrates Ontario 150 Community Achievement Award.” The award was publicly announced Sat., Sept. 23 at the Grand Wooly River Ride, a community art event organized by Sturdy.
“Sue’s enthusiasm and work ethic is infectious, as shown by the amazing community turnout in the Grand Wooly ride on Saturday,” said Kathryn McGarry, MPP Cambridge.
“By inviting people to knit and contribute and item to project, she gave everyone a way to share in celebrating the 150th anniversary of Ontario and Cambridge in a tangible way. The big Canada flag created in Dickson Park from donated material is a wonderful tribute to Cambridge’s textile history.”
Monthly through December, two people from Cambridge and North Dumfries will be selected for the award, based on their significant volunteer contributions and to the community at large.
One adult and one youth may receive an award each month. The award includes a certificate and Ontario150 merchandise.
“Every day I see people contributing their time and skills to make Cambridge and North Dumfries a better place for everyone. I want to celebrate all that good work as Ontario and Canada marks 150 years,” Kathryn said.
