Recognition

Ontario Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth Dowdeswell, North Glengarry Arts, Culture and Heritage Committee members Carma Williams and Karen Davison Wood, and Harvey McCue, Chair, Ontario Heritage Trust, at the presentation of the 2017 Lieutenant Governor’s Ontario Heritage Award for Excellence in Conservation. The award recognizes the Glengarry Routes Heritage Tour and interpretive panels which were unveiled in 2017, and the committee’s support in launching the Community Improvement Plan program back in 2016. The North Glengarry Arts, Culture and Heritage Committee was established by the municipality in 2011 as a means to promote and raise awareness about arts, culture and heritage.

Committee chair and Councillor Carma Williams commented,  “The Township of North Glengarry is an area that is rich in history. We take pride in our roots and as a committee, we work to ensure that the municipality's heritage remains alive and meaningful.”

Also composed of Natalie-Anne Bussière, Councillor Jeff Manley, Dane Lanken and Nicole Nadeau, the committee thanked Nicole Geoffrion who was a long-standing member of the group.
