Lennoxville honours outstanding citizens

By Taylor McClure, Special to The Record

Thursday evening the Borough of Lennoxville held its annual Outstanding Achievement Awards Ceremony at the Amédée-Beaudoin Community Centre. The event was started by the Town of Lennoxville over 25 years ago to bring recognition to those citizens who go above and beyond in terms of their community involvement in areas such as Arts and Culture, Citizenship and Volunteer Work, Education, and many more.
At this year’s ceremony, with over 70 community members in attendance, four individuals and four organizations were celebrated for their work in the local community and all that they have achieved over the last few years. The four organizations honoured this year were the Townships Sun, Lennoxville-Ascot Historical and Museum Society, Bishop’s University, and Simon Roy Dental Clinic. The four community members recognized for their involvement in the community were Julienne Lajoie, Albert MacDonald, William Dubois and Judy Keenan. “It all started with the Town of Lennoxville. Lennoxville has a long history of devoted volunteers,” explained Jennifer Garfat, Borough Councillor for the Uplands District of Lennoxville.
