Last night at Frontiers Foundation AGM, President Lawrence Gladue praised you for your work and being a splendid person. He wanted to personally present this medal to you, however due to your daughter’s health you couldn’t make it.
Back in 1996 I was fortunate to meet you for the first time at Wagoshig First Nation building log houses after which you became one of our Aboriginal Operation Beaver volunteers of the year. In subsequent years I saw you in action in many housing projects in Northern Ontario and in Quebec at Kitcisakik, handling our LT40 Woodmizer. Also wherever and whenever you laboured, that wonderful Evelyn was with you, sharing your assignment and equally worthy of recognition.
Thanks to your presentation at the Indigenous Conference in Vancouver, B.C. the world learned about Frontiers volunteer work in Canada’s third world.
Your personal contribution to voluntary sector resulted in improved health and better living conditions for
