Me (MolsonTonia) with 2009 Recipient, Mike Williscraft (Grimsby Lincoln News and Niagara this Week)
Nominations are now open for the 2010 Molson Community Award in Memory of Mary Knowles. This award was created by the charitable division of the Ontario Community Newspapers Foundation (OCNA) and is sponsored by Molson Coors Canada. Since 1996, we have been recognizing the personal contributions of individuals who are committed to the growth and development of their communities as well as the connection community newspapers have with their communities.
Mary Knowles was a dedicated newspaper person, and active community member who died from breast cancer in November of 1996.
Do you know someone deserving? Nominations are being accepted until Friday, February 26, 2010. This year’s recipient will be announced in March 2010, and the award will be presented on May 14 at OCNA’s Better Newspaper Awards Gala at the Sheraton Centre in downtown Toronto.
