CORNWALL, Ontario - The Cornwall and district chapter of Big Brothers and Big Sisters isn't resting on its laurels - not even a little bit.
After celebrating its 40th anniversary with a gala at Aultsville Theatre in Cornwall, most of the talk was about the next 40 years serving young people in the Cornwall area.
It was a special event for everyone attached to the Cornwall agency, but especially Bob Carlisle and Anne Bourdon, named Big Brother and Big Sister of the Year respectively.
Seaway News was also feted for its commitment to Big Brothers and Big Sisters, as our newspaper was named Big Business of the Year.
"We're so honoured to receive this prestigious award," said TC Media general manager Rick Shaver. "We've been a supporter of Big Brothers for many years, and we will continue to be a solid community partner for years to come."
