    I would like to nominate Amy Claxton. Amy works at Trenton High School as the arts teacher in the intermediate department.She is supportive, patient and always seems to have time for her students. She recently put together a full day of activities including an escape room that the students and herself had been working on. It was a welcome break from our new “normal” class life.

    Duncan Armstrong and community sewists

    by Penelopej, 3 months ago
    Duncan and his group of Sewists have gone well above and beyond the call of duty for the community during COVID. He has coordinated deliveries, kept spirits up and created a positive atmosphere in the community during these trying times.

    Life Saver

    by Bucket, 3 months ago

    On behalf of our mother, Jean Ogden, words can’t express our deepest thanks to our nominee’s.

    On March 4th, our mom’s neighbour, Ava Patterson, along with her boyfriend Nolan Price were leaving to go to work when this very fortunate faith came into play. Having to come to the north side of Nolan’s vehicle, Ava had to pass by our mother’s front porch where she happened to spy Jean lying on the ground. Their swift actions resulted with an arrival to TMH emergency department, narrowly bringing her back from hyperthermia. Our mom had suffered a stroke and given different luck... Continue reading

    A great group

    by bubbieone, 3 months ago
    During the hectic past year, when there was a need for everything, Duncan Armstrong organized both a nightly make noise group, and a group of women, who were sewing at a mad pace, to supply hospitals and nursing homes with masks and surgical caps. When the almost everyone had their own masks and the desperate need was no longer there, this group continued to sew to donate a huge amount to the hospital. Duncan was always on the road, picking up fabric, dropping off fabric and masks, making sure everyone had exactly what they needed to keep going. He is... Continue reading

    Duncan Armstrong

    by Ilovechinny3, 3 months ago
    Duncan Armstrong is your man. He’s not only helping health care workers. He is sitting in a tent on a cold night. Making money and collecting food for those on the street. He is so busy delivering goodys to health care places, as well as old age homes. He never for gets any one. He still finds time for friends as well. If there was more in this world like him it would be a better world.
