AGM & Volunteer Recognition Evening

50th Anniversary Celebration at our AGM & Volunteer Recognition Evening!

 Ron Lehman
Big Brothers Big Sisters is proud to be celebrating 50 years of mentoring in Peel Region. On June 7th we celebrated the impact our programs have had on so many youth in Peel Region at our AGM & Volunteer Recognition Evening. Volunteers were awarded for 5, 10, 15 and 20 years of service and 6 scholarships were presented to our Little Brothers and Little Sisters to assist in their post secondary education.  
Several historic volunteers, former Bigs and Littles, former Executive Directors and Board Chairs and other special guests joined together for the celebration.  Most certainly the highlight of the evening was a video that was played of Ron Lehman, our 2nd ever Big Brother in Peel Region. Ron was matched with Little Brother Jim who passed away at the young age of 13 from a heart aneurism. Ron was there to share his story, making an emotional impact on the evening.

There are no images available in the folder that was selected to display in the image gallery.

Other special guests included mom Heather Heasman talking about the impact her sons’ Big Brothers made in their lives.  All of her son's were matched in the 1990's and are now 40, 38 and 36.  Additionally, Big and Little Sister Jill Barber and Alana Malden who were matched in 1991 came together to speak about how much their friendship has meant to both of them.
