A Ponoka veteran will be awarded the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award for his community service on Monday.
Hugh Greene served in the air force during the Second World War. He has been a member of the Royal Canadian Legion since 1946, and has served both at a local level and as Dominion president.
Outside the Legion, Greene has served his community through the Chamber of Commerce, the Saint Augustine School Board and the Saint Augustine board of directors.
He has also volunteered as a leader with Scouts Canada and was the chair of the Ponoka Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron.
The Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award recognizes individuals who volunteer their time to help others and to build a smarter and more caring nation.
