English-speaking community honours three of its finest
By Irwin Block
It was an evening of recognition and celebration as leading members of Quebec’s English-speaking communities gathered to honour three of their finest.
Some 150 activists, past and present, and those who support their work dined together at the St. James Club on Union St. Thursday to pay tribute to the leadership, selfless dedication and achievements of James Hughes, Eric Maldoff and Marjorie Sharp.
They are the recipients of the sixth annual Sheila and Victor Goldbloom Distinguished Community Service Award, presented by the Quebec Community Groups Network (QCGN), which organized the tribute event.
Introducing the winners, Irene Tschernomor, a QCGN board member who chaired the jury, said “These wonderful individuals, who have devoted themselves to improving the lives of their peers, truly represent the values of community leadership.”
