Hundreds of people-- of all ages-- donate thousands of hours to community organizations and causes during the year. Below is a sampling of just a few of the people that have made a difference to our community in the past year. The Acton Agricultural Society was named Acton Citizens of the Year for its 92-year contribution to this community. Society members Terry Foster, president Dale Hewitt and Frank Hanes will be among those to accept the award at a banquet on Friday, May 12. The Society with more 100 members has, for 92 years, provided the most successful and continuous event in Acton.

Shirley Broostad of Acton received the Seniors Achievement Award from the Province of Ontario. She was recognzied for "working tirelessly" on committees serving serniors, children and families.
