Mayor Tara Veer tipped her hat to individuals and organizations at the annual Mayor’s Recognition Awards presentation ceremony on Thursday.

The Mayor’s Special Award, the highest recognition from the city, went to Lyn Radford, Cari and Ron MacLean, and the Aspen Heights MicroSociety.

Dylann Jurak was also honoured with a new Mayor’s Special Award for youth. Jurak is a student at Aspen Heights Elementary School and works on the MicroSociety project.

“Red Deer is a dynamic, vibrant, transformational community because of the many Red Deerians who make outstanding community contributions across various disciplines, which bring profile and pride to our city on both a provincial and national level,” said Veer. “On behalf of the 100,807 citizens our council serves, it is a privilege to be able to honour the many youth, men and women who have made, and continue to make, exceptional contributions to Red Deer’s strong community life.”

The Mayor’s Recognition Awards recognize and celebrate individuals, teams or groups whose achievements and service have resulted in significant contributions to the community and have enhanced the image of Red Deer.

Erin Pettifor was the recipient of the Princess Margaret Scholarship. Awards were also given out in the athletics, community builders, fine and performing arts and distinguished voluntary service categories.
