Former warden, Arthur reeve Doreen Hostrawser receives Louella Logan Award

WELLINGTON COUNTY – Doreen Hostrawser has been selected as the recipient of the 2020 Luella Logan Award for Outstanding Service by a Woman in Politics.

The recognition for the former Arthur village reeve, who was warden of Wellington County in 1990, was announced by the county on Nov. 26.

Established in 2019, annual Luella Logan Award for Outstanding Service by a Woman in Politics is presented to a retired female politician who has shown outstanding service in local politics with the County of Wellington, or one of the county’s member municipalities.

The recipient will receive a donation of $1,500 to allocate to the charity of her choice.

The award is funded through a donation the county received from Robert Logan in recognition of his late wife Luella “Lou” Logan, the first female councillor to sit on Wellington County council.

Hostrawser wanted to direct her donation to a charity that all residents in the county could benefit from.

She selected The River Trail in Arthur. The donation will be used to maintain the trail and ensure it is kept for many generations to enjoy.

“On behalf of county council, I would like to congratulate Doreen Hostrawser on receiving this award,” said Warden Kelly Linton.

“Luella Logan contributed so much to Wellington County during her political career and this award is a wonderful way to honour her legacy.”
