Dawn-Euphemia is honouring The Pie Lady.
Each year, the province helps municipalities honour seniors during Seniors’ month. Mayor Bill Bilton and council has given the award this year to Norma McFadden.
McFadden and her late husband Morely set up a home in the community in 1963, says Bilton and ever since then she did what she could to “make life better for those around her.”
She was a familiar face, driving around in the “big yellow school bus” for 38 years. But she also used her hospitality skills to help others.
“She could also be found helping with school activities, like bake sales and field trips or babysitting for many families,” says Bilton in a news release. “Any time there was an emergency or a tragic event, she was there to help – gathering clothing and house hold items after a fire, with food and baked goods or flowers for the sick or after a death in a family. She has catered many weddings and Christmas dinners including those for the Township employees and firefighters.
“No matter what the need is or her previous obligations, she was and still is there to do her best to make things better.”
Bilton adds her countless hours of community service helped make Dawn-Euphemia a better place.
