Life Membership Award Recipient 2023

Congratulations to Bev Cook, who received our Life Membership Award at our Annual General Meeting on June 3. Bev, who helped plan the event, was taken by surprise when Chair Phil McRae added the presentation of the award to the end of the meeting.

Bev has shown an unfailing commitment to improving our organization and is thus very deserving of this award. She has been a key player in keeping our policies and procedures up to date, facilitating our planning processes, and establishing our student bursary program. Bev currently volunteers with the Friends as the Chair of our Communications Committee. This year she has authored quarterly articles in the Brighton Beacon magazine to promote the work of our organization and the park. Before this role, she served as Corporate Secretary from 2014 to 2017, and Chair of the board from 2017 to 2020.
Congratulations, Bev, and thank you for all that you have done to promote the work of the Friends and support the Park and its staff.
