Burlington150 Awards Honour Amazing People
Accolades and applause were all the rage as the Burlington150 Awards recognized outstanding residents on Monday.
The awards were handed out at a special reception held at Crossroads Centre.
Canada 150 celebrations, and Ontario 150 celebrations, have been taking place all year.
"Milestone anniversaries like this provides us with the opportunity to reflect on our accomplishments and dream of future possibilities. In this spirit, I launched the Burlington150 to remind us of who were are, and to celebrate those who embody the qualities and values that make our community - and our province - great by dedicating their time and talent in the service of others,” said Burlington MPP Eleanor McMahon.
“I'm honoured to have the opportunity to recognize so many outstanding individuals who continue to inspire me.”
McMahon honoured 150 residents “who embody the qualities and values that make our province great” and who have dedicated their time and talent toward community service in Burlington.
Burlington150 celebrates people who contribute to:
* Celebrating diversity/inclusion
* Building community/capacity
* Protecting the heritage of Burlington
* Protecting the environment
* Promoting a healthy community
Residents were asked to nominate suitable candidates through an application process organized by McMahon's constituency office last July.
