As important as serving our customers’ fabric, quilts and notion needs are to Sanity Hill, service to the community has ALWAYS been one of the most important parts of our lives!

Recently Murray (Hilda’s right hand man) was honoured with the PWU Community Volunteer Award by The Power Workers Union! The accompanying news release reads:

Mr. Murray Wales a PWU Civil Maintainer at the Center of Site was nominated by his coworkers for the award in recognition of his efforts outside of work as a Community volunteer. (Thanks to those members and coworkers of Murrays for his nomination.)

Murray’s contributions and efforts were recognized by the PWU Community Volunteer Award selection committee and Murray received a PWU Committee Volunteer award this past Thursday in Toronto at the annual Council of Chief Stewards.

Just a few of the items the selection committee took note of in regard to Murray’s efforts were Fostering and work with the Children’s Aid Society, adoptions, Make a Wish, Lions, and Cadets to name a few. The message Murray relayed to the Council of Chief Stewards and those in attendance at his award acceptance Murray relayed that if people could volunteer for just an hour a week that it would make a difference.

Thanks Murray for your dedication, commitment and efforts as your recognition was certainly warranted.

In classic Murray-fashion the $1000 prize that went with the award was quickly donated to the Wingham Lions Club to help with their community volunteer programs!

Way to Go Murray!
