Mayor Jim Watson and River Ward Councillor, Riley Brockington, presented Dallas Greeley with the Mayor's City Builder Award at Wednesday's City Council meeting.
Dallas Greeley first started volunteering with the Billings Estate National Historic Site tea room 12 years ago. Since then, she has branched out to support City of Ottawa museums in other areas, including children's programs, site maintenance such as painting fences and gardening, Doors Open Ottawa, as well as mentoring, training and interviewing prospective volunteers.
Contributing over two thousand hours, the city said Greeley has been a leading example of community involvement on the front line of museums by delivering exceptional customer service and by contributing feedback, ideas, and suggestions for improving operations.
The Mayor's City Builder Award is a civic honour created to recognize an individual, group or organization that has, through outstanding volunteerism or exemplary action, demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to making our city a better place today and for the future. This may include lifelong service, outstanding acts of kindness, inspiring charitable work, community building or other exemplary achievements.
Individuals, groups or organizations may be nominated by members of City Council or the public.
The award is presented at the beginning of each City Council meeting.
