At the 57th Annual Convention of the Seniors Association in Houston, Dorothy and Max Cheyne were both awarded their Lifetime Gold Membership cards, pins and certificates. They are the first people from Kitimat to have been awarded this honour.
”They were the very first members of our association that I applied to receive the gold card and life membership of the provincial association,” said Joseph Martyres, President of the Kitimat Seniors Association.
”It’s for all the times and things I’ve done for the community and the Senior’s Centre,” said Dorothy Cheyne.
Dorothy has been a member of the Seniors Association for 29 years and during that time she has been president of the association locally, regionally and provincially. She has been helping seniors with their income tax.
“It’s because of their helping other seniors and because they reached out and touched the lives of other seniors that I thought it was very important they received this life membership,” said Martyres.
The Gold Membership represents a lifetime membership with the Seniors Association. In addition, this honour has been given to two other members recently.
“Tilly Bachmann and Eileen Kraven were the next two people who have also worked very hard for the association in various forms and health, executive positions. I Gave them their gold card and pin and certificates which I applied for at the provincial executives. It went through and I provided them at our annual general meeting last month,” said Martyres.
Congratulations Dorothy and Max.
