Nominations open for Community Builders’ Awards

Program hosted by Archway Community Services in Abbotsford

Nominations are now being accepted for the Community Builders’ Awards organized by Archway Community Services (formerly Abbotsford Community Services).

The awards honour outstanding individuals and organizations who work tirelessly, passionately and collaboratively to make the community a better place in which to live, work and raise a family.

The Community Builders’ Awards were established in 2006 by the Archway board of directors to honour and acknowledge individuals, and have since grown to recognize organizations.

The 2019 awards will be held Oct. 24 at The Reach Gallery Museum.

In 2018, Kathy Doerksen, Marina Gibson, Memento Mori and Envision Financial were recognized for their contributions to Archway and the larger community.

A few of the other notable past recipients include Dr. Andy Sidhu, Home Depot, Dr. Elizabeth Watts and the late Dave Holmberg.

“As we celebrate our 50th year, we’re reminded of how far our organization and community has come,” said Darlynnda Ross, chair of the awards committee and Archway board member.

“None of this would be possible without the leadership and contributions of individuals and organizations who share our vision of ‘justice, opportunities and equitable access for all.’ ”

The deadline for nominations is Aug. 15. Visit to submit a nomination and see a complete list of past recipients.
