2018 Senior of the Year Awards

2018 Senior of the Year Awards

The Dr. HS Trefry Centre hosted its annual BBQ luncheon and Senior of the Year awards for 8 local municipalities on Tuesday at the RC Legion in Richards Landing.

Volunteers were hard at work flipping burgers outback, as a hall full of seniors from the Island and along the North Shore socialized and enjoyed music by Barb and Jan with Nostalgia Live.

Tuesday also happened to be Jimmy Jackson’s birthday and he entertained the crowd with a birthday dance. Lucky for us, he wasn’t wearing his birthday suit.

After the BBQ lunch, municipal leaders presented awards to this year’s recipients.
