This is the 5th year now that we as a community are acknowledging those people who consistently go above and beyond in their efforts to make Elbow the great place it is. This year we had 5 individuals that were nominated by the community – ALL of them very deserving.
Voting took place from October 15 – 21st, and later that evening at the Annual Ratepayers Meeting, Mayor Rob Hundeby presented Norma Johnson with the 2015 Citizen of the Year Award.
Taken from Norma’s nominations:
Norma is a very active woman in many community happenings. She belongs on a number of committees such as the Library Board, Wildlife Federation, and Orchard Committee. She is always willing to lend a hand and she is always a very pleasant lady to work with. She also helps out at Bingo’s by being an excellent caller. Her energy and smile warm everyone’s heart.
Norma Johnson has been an active volunteer in many fields coming to Elbow 11 years ago. Norma has been on the Library Board all of those years involved in the Hobby & Trade Shows. Norma is a First Responder having brought the trainer to Elbow and every two years Norma is recertified. Norma is active in the Wildlife Federation doing her part during the Walleye Classic and Fish Fry, and is active in finding ways of improving water quality, restocking the lake and finding ways to spend money responsibly along with charitable donations. Bingo night sees Norma helping to raise money towards the Civic Centre expenses. Once a member of the Service Club, she continues to volunteer at the Fall Suppers and various other projects. Norma was instrumental in building the bridge across Bayshore to Tuft’s Bay and establishing the Elbow Walking Trail – she continues with the ongoing grooming of the trail. Norma belongs to the Elbow Art Society – a water colour artist and a good one. Norma is presently on the Village Facilities Committee working on infrastructure. With all the volunteering Norma does, she still finds time to work at the Community Park on work day.
