Members of Drew Community Committee recognized for contribution to Minto

Drew volunteers recognized – Members of the Drew Community Committee were recognized for their contribution to the municipality by Minto council on Sept. 17. The group looks after the ball diamond, community hall and pavilion in the rural hamlet and regularly holds fundraisers to cover the cost of facility upgrades.

“We kind of help where we can, but basically it’s your baby out there,” said Mayor George Bridge, who presented a certificate of recognition to committee president Nicole Hymers.

“What Drew stands for is being there for families and generations to come,” said Hymers, who noted she moved to the community with her husband Greg four years ago, and, “We’ve never felt more welcomed.”
