Good Neighbour Award

(2017-01-03) At the Town's New Year levee, Kensington Mayor Rowan Caseley presented the inaugural Good Neighbour Award to the Kensington North Watershed Association. Secretary Paul Christensen and Executive Director Barry Murray were at the levee and received the award on behalf of the Association.

Mayor Caseley said that he "had a page of names that (he) had to narrow down. It was extremely difficult because each and every name on the list is extremely deserving." The award is presented to an individual, a group or and organization that has demonstrated volunteerism, charity, leadership, community building, youth development, environment stewardship or education as selected by the Mayor.

The KNWSA helped the town with several projects since it's inception, said Caseley, including arranging and executing the clean-up of the Alysha Toombs Memorial Park, waste clean-up of the old dump site located behind the town's waste water treatment lagoon as well as educational presentations to the community's youth on watershed protection, conservation and safety.
