Six individuals and one organization were honoured by the District of North Vancouver this week for their positive contributions to the community.
Mayor Richard Walton and council presented the latest round of Civic Recognition Awards at municipal hall on Monday night.
The Award of Honour, which recognizes those that have made outstanding contributions to the community, including significant achievements in sports, science and culture, either within the district, the province, nationally or internationally, went to two people and a non-profit society. Christine Miller received the award for her commitment to safety education at the North Shore Black Bear Society and in the community. Mick Maguire earned the recognition for his work with the North Shore Triathlon and for promoting active and healthy living in the community. And Sharing Abundance got the award for providing high-quality, nutritious meals, and for creating opportunities to build community ties.
Three people received the Achievement Award, which is presented to individuals, teams or groups who achieve provincial, national or international recognition in the areas of sports or culture, or perform a noteworthy deed which is considered a benefit to the community. Jan Lander and Doug Hayman both earned the award for their commitment to salmon enhancement and streamkeeper programs in the community. The recognition was also bestowed upon Kulvir Mann for her commitment to leadership and safety at Canyon Heights Elementary and in the community.
A Certificate of Appreciation, which recognizes the commitment and contribution that a person or organization made towards the district, went to Lana MacArthur for her response to an emergency and her commitment to keeping the children of Highlands Elementary safe.
