If you’ve been following LynnValleyLife for a while, you’ll know that one of our favourite times of the year is the lead up to our annual Good Neighbour Award.
All year ‘through we keep our ears to the ground for people who represent Lynn Valley at its finest – whether it is through acts of quiet kindness or participating in more public “passion projects” for a good cause. Last year’s recipients were Dave and Wilna Parry, who opened their doors to a blind Somalian refugee, and the year before that it was Cath Bates Dimmock, a volunteer coach who has given heart and soul to Argyle’s gymnastics program. Other times recipients have been people whose name you might not have heard before, but who are heroes on their street or in their organization for all the help they give to others.
Who might our Good Neighbour be for 2017? Please send us a note telling us why you think your nominee makes this world a better place to be. It doesn’t have to be long and fancy – just from the heart! Please send your suggestions to [email protected] before December 1, 2016. Lynn Valley’s Good Neighbour for 2017 will receive a plaque, a restaurant gift certificate, and some well-deserved recognition (though they are probably not the type to seek it)!
