Former Township councillor receives award at Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce meeting

Bev Dornan was named H.D. Stafford Good Citizen of the Year at the annual presentation of the award Tuesday.

Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce presents the award in memory of the late Harold Stafford, former superintendent of schools in Langley, who believed that business, educators and citizens needed to work together to make a better community. It has been presented since 1990.

“H.D. Stafford defined good citizenship,” said chamber first vice-president Eric Woodward, who handed out the award.

Dornan, who spent the past six years as a Langley Township councillor before being defeated in her bid for a third term last month, is a lifetime Langley resident who has been involved with many causes and organizations over the years.

“Now I’m looking for more to do, as I have some time on my hands,” she said in accepting the award.

She has been chair of the Langley Relay For Life, chair of Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation, president of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce, director of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce, director of Tourism Langley and is president-elect of Aldergrove Rotary Club.

She also has served on the Aldergrove pool task force and numerous municipal committees.

She is a long-time employee and manager at Otter Co-op, where she is currently the general merchandise manager.

Past recipients of the award who were on hand to congratulate her were Sylvia Anderson, Dale Ball, Tim Lounsbury, Jim McGregor, David Esworthy and Susan Magnusson.
