Morewood resident latest Community Builder Award recipient

WINCHESTER — The North Dundas Council Chamber hosts a special session this evening as the municipality confers its annual Community Builder Award on the latest recipient — Bill Smirle.

The township announced the Morewood resident as this year’s pick during the summer “Meet Me on Main Street” event in that village. Smirle officially picks up the honour from council this evening, Nov. 28. The honourifics begin at 7 p.m.

The annual recognition typically includes congratulatory speeches from the recipient’s friends, members of council and  mayor, followed by words of thanks from the honouree. The Chamber’s dividing wall is usually rolled back to accommodate the larger-than-usual audience.

All are welcome to attend.

Smirle will be officially recognized tonight (Nov. 28), but in keeping with tradition, advance notice was made of the upcoming honour. In this case the announcement came in front of past recipients who gathered in front of the stage during the well-attended street party in the village where Bill and Nancy Smirle reside.
