2018 Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients Announced –
BRANTFORD, Ont. – The Lifetime Achievement Award Committee is pleased to announce the 2018 recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Volunteerism are Carol Tobicoe of Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation, Steven Williams of Six Nations of the Grand River Territory, Mel Osborne of the County of Brant and Ross Enslev of the City of Brantford.
The Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Volunteerism recognizes individuals who have made an exceptional contribution to our communities through volunteerism during their lifetime. The award is presented annually to up to four residents from Brantford, Brant, Six Nations and New Credit. As a part of the award, a $5,000 legacy fund will be established in honour of each recipient and be administered by the Brant Community Foundation.
A celebration of the recipients will be held during National Volunteer Week. This year’s celebration event will take place the evening of Monday, April 16, at the Brantford Golf & Country Club.
“Our 2018 recipients have each made a tremendous positive difference in the lives of so many – and without expecting anything in return,” said Derek Bond, award committee chair. “All four have been recognized for their outstanding contributions through volunteering in having previously received other well-deserved commendations and awards for their ongoing efforts and leadership. Now it’s our turn to honour them for their lifetime of giving selflessly and directly to the betterment of our communities.”
