“The Civic Awards program provides an opportunity for the Municipality to publicly recognize the talents and efforts of our community members,” notes Bob Sanderson, Mayor of the Municipality of Port Hope. “In a community the size of Port Hope, volunteerism is what enables so many projects and initiatives to take flight.
