I want to thank everyone for appreciating me and honouring me as the Citizen of the Year. The award means a lot to me. It was a total surprise to me.
Every day when I walk through town, people stop me and say congratulations, which is so nice.
I’ve always really enjoyed Ladysmith, and the people are so community-minded.
I’ve always loved working with and for the people of Ladysmith, and they’ve always supported us. It’s such a warm community, and I look forward to continuing to participate in the community on an ongoing basis.
