John Murphy to Receive BC Community Achievement Award

20 Mar

John Murphy of Vanderhoof will receive the Community Achievement Award at a ceremony in Victoria on April 20th, to be presented by Premier Christy Clark. Murphy has been an active community volunteer for as long as Vanderhoof residents can remember. He was a 15-year volunteer firefighter, a community and recreation fundraiser, and he lead the effort to build a much needed 33-unit seniors’ residence. John continues to make a difference in Vanderhoof by contributing his knowledge and skills to a project to build an activity centre for seniors. John was nominated for this prestigious award by the newly organized Volunteer Vanderhoof. While gathering information for John’s nomination, John was described as “a person who is dedicated to creating a better community” and “driven.” Once John sets a goal, he is very determined to make it happen. He has great ideas, is a very social person with great community connections, and is very experienced in fundraising and project management. He has incredible foresight, and is very community-minded. He is always there to help when something needs doing. John will be presented with his British Columbia Community Achievement Award during a ceremony in Victoria on April 20th. Premier Christie Clark will bestow this honour on John.
