Several members of St. Peter, Cobourg were honoured at Cobourg’s Annual Civic Awards ceremony, held virtually on Sept. 24.

“At the heart of every community are those volunteers who make the impossible possible – those who recognize the needs of others and selflessly give their time to meet those needs,” wrote Cobourg Mayor John Henderson in the Northumberland News.

St. Peter’s is not just a church but a significant part of Cobourg’s thriving community. Even during the pandemic, church members, with the assistance of others, have been working to ensure that the vulnerable are fed and kids have warm coats for the winter.

Ann Stokes received a Distinguished Community Service Award for individuals for her work with The Blue Box. The workers for Thursday Night Lite, the dinner program that feeds on average 130 people each week, won in the group category.

In the major awards category, Barbara Tait was honoured as Outstanding Senior for her work with many volunteer organizations, including the Vision Working Group at St. Peter’s, and Rod Baker won the prestigious Mayor’s Award for his long-standing work with Coats for Kids, as well as his many charitable works at St. Peter’s.
