516

A Brooke-Alvinston woman is one of five women being honoured as Women of Excellence by the Sarnia Community Foundation.

Terry MacDonald is being hailed as a person who freely gives her time and ideas to make things better for the people living in Brooke-Alvinston.

MacDonald, who has been a fixture at the Alvinston Legion, responds individually to people who need her to help, as well as being heavily involved in several that not only impact her community but can also make a difference nationwide. MacDonald is a fundraiser, secretary, and organizer creating a monthly calendar of events for the community. She’s also been involved in the recently created Alvinston Feral Cat Program.

MacDonald will be honoured with Madhu Baker, an advocate for mental health, trauma and addiction, Kathy Bresett – a live long advocate for people facing barriers and is the executive director of the North Lambton Community Health Centre, Michelle Holbrook, the executive director of Rebound who has been active with children’s charities for years, and Deanna Sandrin, who is active in business in traditionally male-dominated industries and is hailed as a “role model for the new generation of women entering the workforce, especially in
the Sarnia-Lambton community where skilled trades are in high demand.”

“Sarnia-Lambton truly has amazing leaders who help shape this community. This year’s recipients come from all parts of the county; embarking on those
key principles of making your community better, assisting with a cause, or collaborating help with a community project,” says Sarnia Community Foundation Chair Bill Woods.

The women will be honoured June 8. For tickets, you can go to the foundation’s website www.sarniacommunityfoundation.ca
