Today, Eleanor McMahon, MPP for Burlington was pleased to announce recipients of the Burlington150 Awards at a special reception held at Crossroads Centre in Burlington.
In a year focused on celebrating our province and country, MPP McMahon honoured 150 residents who embody the qualities and values that make our province great and who have dedicated their time and talent towards community service in Burlington.
Burlington150 celebrates people who contribute to:
• Celebrating diversity/inclusion
• Building community/capacity
• Protecting the heritage of Burlington
• Protecting the environment
• Promoting a healthy community
In July 2017, residents of Burlington were asked to nominate suitable candidates through an application process organized by MPP McMahon’s Constituency Office.
“Milestone anniversaries like this provides us with the opportunity to reflect on our accomplishments and dream of future possibilities. In this spirit, I launched the Burlington150 to remind us of who were are, and to celebrate those who embody the qualities and values that make our community - and our province - great by dedicating their time and talent in the service of others. As MPP for Burlington, I’m honoured to have the opportunity to recognize so many outstanding individuals who continue to inspire me. I wish to thank Burlington residents for making our community such a wonderful place to live, and for making these Burlington150 Awards such an overwhelming success.”
