Each year, we honour our Volunteer of the Year with the presentation of The John Cole Award, and at our AGM in June 2016, this award was presented to Joan Selwood, a long-standing member who ‘flies under the radar’.
Joan joined The Friends in 2002 and was quickly adopted by the Christmas at Presqu’ile team. She is part of the hard working team, and she can be found in the Tea Room throughout the show that takes place in November.
As well, Joan volunteers in the Lighthouse Interpretive Centre and at the various out-of-Park events that The Friends attend, such at Brighton History Weekend in February.
A few years ago, Joan spent much time researching and putting together the history of the 4 cottages in the Park (information can be found on our website).
Many congratulations to Joan.
