Community builder

There are just not enough words to describe the impact of Lynne Harris on this community.

There are just not enough words to describe the impact of Lynne Harris on this community.

Lynne was a community builder and advocate. When our children can enjoy the multi-facetted playgrounds, access to a good schools and community facilities or a community event like Canada Day, we can thank Lynne for her hard work in making these things happen.

Over the years, she worked tirelessly, quietly and with full energy to make this a community worth living in. Lynne didn’t only think about good ideas, but she worked hard to make them happen.

She emulated humble servant leadership, and did not do things because of a pay cheque or to get her name in the headlines.

Thank you, from someone who worked with you on council. I appreciate you and will miss you in your leadership role. Enjoy the next stage of your life.
