Wilson recognized by Port Hardy Council for commitment to thrift store

Marg is a true leader for Port Hardy’s auxiliary and her nominators feel she is unstoppable.”

Marg Wilson was recognized by Port Hardy Council last Tuesday, in honour of her outstanding volunteerism at the Port Hardy Hospital Auxiliary Society Thrift Store.

“The District of Port Hardy from time to time very much enjoys recognizing one of its citizens for outstanding work in the community,” said Port Hardy Mayor Hank Bood during a brief speech that recognized Wilson’s achievements. “Her volunteer work commitment to the Port Hardy Auxiliary Thrift Shop has simply been enormous.”

Wilson’s nominators, Catherine Henderson and Heather Evans, described Wilson as a “dedicated volunteer who works up to 88 hours per week and works through statutory holidays ensuring the product is moved to the front of the store so that donations can be made to local organizations, such as the Port Hardy Volunteer Fire Department, BC Ambulance, and the hospital,” stated Bood, who added Wilson has “led the charge to institute a donation bin at Tri-Port recycling with Rod Inglis, to ensure that reusable clothing isn’t taken to the landfill… Marg is a true leader for Port Hardy’s auxiliary and her nominators feel she is unstoppable.”

Wilson was then presented with a certificate of appreciation, which she held up proudly for a photo with Bood.
