Cloverdale-Langley City MP John Aldag presents Community Leadership Awards

The annual Community Leadership Awards will be held this Sunday, July 14 at Douglas Park (20550 Douglas Crescent) with a celebratory barbecue open to the public.

Cloverdale-Langley City MP John Aldag will be grilling up free burgers and hot dogs from 12 to 3 p.m. before honouring local residents nominated for their work in the community.

Members of Cloverdale-Langley City were nominated by neighbors and peers in six different categories; Arts & Culture, Diversity & Inclusion, Environment, Heritage, Seniors & Youth Advocacy, and Unsung Hero.

“This is important for the riding of Cloverdale-Langley City,” said Aldag, “because we are gathering as a community and celebrating those who have exemplified exceptional service , volunteerism, and community leadership. It’s also a way to say an end-of-first-term thank you to all constituents.”

The awards ceremony will start at 2 p.m on Spirit Square Stage and is open to anyone wishing to be in attendance.
