Germain Vigneault accepts the B.C. Achievement Foundation Award from The Honourable Judith Guichon, OBC, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia and Honourable Coralee Oakes, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.
The citation reads: Germayne Vigneault is one of Haida Gwaii’s most dedicated volunteers. He represents the finest in community spirit. A proud member of the Port Clements community, Germayne is involved in any endeavor that needs volunteers. With his unassuming leadership style, Germayne has contributed to many organizations including the Port Clements Community Hall Society, Canada Day 2013, the Historical Society and Museum and the Tourism Committee. He is an active member of the Haida Gwaii Arts Council and promotes the arts for all communities on Haida Gwaii and beyond. Should you find yourself in Ports Clements in June, take Germayne’s class in lantern making. The lanterns are then released in August at the Edge of the World Music Festival.
