Three ‘Character in Action’ awards to be presented

Character Abbotsford council to announce recipents on Nov. 19

The Character Abbotsford council, with its sponsor Pospera Credit Union, will present three Character in Action Awards on Nov. 19.

The council will recognize three unsung heroes who have modelled respect, responsibility, integrity, empathy, courage, and/or service during the past year.

“While the past six months have been a challenging time for all of us, there are countless examples of individuals living out their lives with character,” says Shelly Avram, vice chair of Character Abbotsford Society’s board of directors and a partner with RDM Lawyers LLP.

“By highlighting a few inspiring stories, the council hopes to thank our community for making Abbotsford such a wonderful place to live and spur each of us on to continued character-rich interactions in the months ahead.”

Two adults and one youth will be recognized at the Character Abbotsford council’s meeting on Nov. 19. Each individual will receive a $500 gift card to Highstreet shopping centre.

The first Character in Action Awards were presented in May 2019 to Nerlap Sidhu, Anshdeep Sharda and Kiah Ashley.
