Doug Kelly awarded Caring Canadians Award from Governor General.

Doug Kelly, chair of the heritage sub-committee in the Town of Stratford, was award one of the Caring Canadian Awards from Governor General David Johnston on June 16.

An enthusiast of his town’s history and heritage, Doug Kelly was instrumental in the creation of the Stratford Heroes project.

In the lead-up to Remembrance Day each year, posters featuring profiles of local veterans go up on bus shelters and across the town, commemorating area residents who served in the Canadian Armed Forces and the Merchant Marine.

He has been a member of the town’s heritage committee for several years, and has served as its chair since 2008.

Created in 1995, the Caring Canadians Award recognizes living Canadians and permanent residents who have made significant, sustained, unpaid contributions to their community, in Canada or abroad. Often working behind the scenes, these individuals volunteer their time and efforts to help their fellow citizens.
