ABERFOYLE - “Puslinch is very fortunate to have a resident such as Lois McLean who demonstrates, in many facets, an inspiring passion for community enrichment and preserving the history of the township,” said Mayor Dennis Lever on June 17 as he presented McLean with the 2015 Senior of the Year Award.

Lever said McLean was born and raised in Badenoch, attending SS#9, GCVI and Guelph Business College.

Lever said, “a long-time supporter of the community, McLean began giving back by taking on the role of scorekeeper for the Badenoch Baseball Club.”

Later, McLean was a director for the Aberfoyle Fall Fair for a number of years and has served as secretary-treasurer for the Badenoch Community Centre.

Lever said, “Taking a vested interest in the history of Puslinch, McLean is an active member of the Puslinch Historical Society, having written books and papers on Badenoch. Not only has she dedicated herself to serving her community over the years, she has also committed her time to ensuring that its history is preserved  and documented for future generations to enjoy.”

He added, “McLean is a very proud example for others to aspire to in terms of selflessly giving back and getting involved in her community.

“On behalf of the township of Puslinch, we would like to thank you for the time and effort that you have invested in serving your community. Your tireless commitment to others and continued involvement in your community is inspirational and a quality that others should seek to emulate.”

McLean said “there are a lot of people in Puslinch who are deserving. It’s a bit overwhelming to receive this award and I want to thank council for choosing me.”
