Barb Cournoyer, Doug Mitchell, Mike Ford, and Peter Spuzak with the Award of Excellence during council's regular meeting last Wednesday.The award is the national award for Safe Communities Canada, and was awarded to the safety coalition in 2007. Since the coalition represents the entire district, adraw was held to see which municipality would get the plaque and the money for a "safety tree." Alberton won the draw and planted a flowering crab outside the township office. The coalition also won the national award last year, but has not decided which communitywill get the plaque and tree.
