Three ‘Character in Action’ awards to be presented

Character Abbotsford to honour individuals in May

The Character Council of Abbotsford will give out three awards this spring for Character in Action.

The council members will nominate candidates who are living out character in their everyday lives by embodying values like respect, responsibility, integrity, empathy, courage and service.

“We live in a community that is full of amazing acts of service and kindness,” says Vijay Manuel, chair of Character Abbotsford.

“Our plan is to recognize some of these character-rich individuals annually with the hope that their stories will spur us on to even more acts of character.”

The council will recognize its three winners at the May 9 meeting of the Abbotsford Character Council.

Manuel encourages members of the community to post acts of character on social media using the #CharacterInAbby hashtag.
