KidSport Tri-Cities executive director Chris Wilson (centre) praised the Coquitlam Metro Ford Soccer Club for its $38,057 donation for this year’s season. The club has self-funded all of the KidSport grants that the charity has issued to the group for the past six years; it also takes in donations on behalf of KidSport during registration, which amounts to $4,000 each year, Wilson said.
J. Peachy was one of the 90 environmental stewards honoured by the city of Coquitlam at its 16th annual volunteer recognition night, held at city hall June 8.
Don and Norma Gillespie were among the members honoured by the Riverview Horticultural Centre Society at its volunteer appreciation event last month at the HEY building. About 60 people, including Coquitlam-Maillardville MLA Selina Robinson, were at the celebration to mark its 27th year.
