Celebration of Six Nations Community Involvement and Recognition: Community Treasures and Wilma General Memorial Award 2014

05/24/14 – The Annual Six Nations Awards and Recognition Dinner Featuring the Six Nations Wilma General Memorial Award and Six Nations Community Treasures were presented at Six Nations Polytechnic.

The evening’s festivities were opened with greetings, a blessing of the food, and well wishes to all in attendance that evening.

After a dinner of turkey, beef, and all the trimmings, the Awards were presented to the evening’s special guests.

Reta Monture was presented with the Wilma General Memorial Award for 2014. Her community involvement and volunteer work span over 50 years. Some of her noted activities include work with the Six Nations Fall Fair, Chairing the Six Nations Art Council, and participating on the Nations Uniting Board where she assisted with the “Grand Mother’s Tea” initiative.

The Duke of Edinburgh then presented awards to youth involved in their program ranging from Gold, Silver and Bronze recognitions. Those achieving Gold Recognition will receive a special ceremony with the Governor General of Ontario.

Six Nations of the Grand River Ontario Works (formerly Six Nations Welfare) also recognized their clients who have soared to new heights. Each client recognized told a story of how their life is now on a better path to a new beginning.

The Six Nations Community Treasures were presented this year to Erin Monture, Ginger P. Smith, and Brothers Curt and Glenn Styres. All recipients exemplified involvement in the Six Nations community and in helping to make the community a better place.
