Alert Bay Mayor Michael Berry presents community volunteer and village employee Donna Myers with the award for 2014 Citizen of the Year.

Myers receives 2014 citizen award

The most recent Village of Alert Bay council meeting featured some awards.

The most recent Village of Alert Bay council meeting featured some awards. Each year the Village takes nominations from the public for the citizen of the year and the youth citizen of the year.

Donna Myers, long-time Village employee and community volunteer took the award for 2014.

Myers, who recently retired from her position in the Village office, is well-known in the community for her work as Ladies Auxiliary President at the Royal Canadian Legion. Many Remembrance Day buffets, funeral services, and food service during the weekly Lion’s Club Bingo were due to Myers’ dedication to the community of Alert Bay.

There was no youth citizen award because they had no nominations this year.  “I’m sure it isn’t because there isn’t a deserving youth on the island,” said Mayor Michael Berry when asked why there was no youth award for 2014, “but there were no nominations.”

The council also awarded the best decorated house and business at this meeting. Norman and Heather Wadhams took the best decorated house award for 2014. The Alert Bay Drugstore won for best decorated business.

Other business at the meeting included the first reading of a tree cutting bylaw amendment that will offer better defined and practical guidelines for tree cutting.
