Kudos to Our Keith Solomon Award Winner
In 1995, the Keith Solomon Award was established to celebrate an individual or group who has made a significant contribution to the improvement or preservation of the Bruce Trail in the Beaver Valley. Keith’s wife, Marguerite, offered one of his boots which was bronzed and mounted on a base and that became the Keith Solomon Award.
Today we recognize an individual for her long-standing, contributions to all parts of our Beaver Valley Bruce Trail Club.
She has been absolutely unflagging and persistent in her pursuit of excellence in everything she does, getting into every nook and cranny of the organization to make sure it is functioning the best way it possibly can.
She has been unbelievably creative in her ideas about how the Club functions -- turning the very drab and boring AGM into a really fun BBQ (plus a tiny bit of business!), thinking up the great idea of Land Ambassadors, gifting landowners with honey, and so on.
She knows every metre of the Trail and every property like the back of her hand, and is able to suggest ideas on every front.
She has been a bulwark and champion of Club common sense. She speaks her mind when others would not.
The Beaver Valley Bruce Trail Club is delighted to announce Jill Smith-Brodie as the recipient of this year’s Keith Solomon Award.
