Shining Bright Recognition Program
Who’s Shining Bright in the Royal City?
The Shining Bright Recognition Program is in place to give credit back to those who have gone out of their way in the community through volunteerism, charity, donations and over-all good will to others.
“We want to recognize those who truly are an example to others through their heartfelt generosity and passion.” says Lili De Capite, President of The Hyack Festival Association, who designed the program as a way of giving thanks to the many people who step out of their comfort zones and want to make a difference to the overall well-being of New Westminster.
She goes on to explain how the program is reflective of the 2019 theme for Hyack Festival Association, Shining Bright in the Royal City. “There’s a large group of people in New Westminster who are really involved and passionate about the community. The number of things that are happening in the city has changed in the past ten years. There’s a lot of people who believe in sharing their passions with others and helping people work on areas they’re passionate about. There are so many opportunities in which to say “yes” but not enough of us that actually do it.”
Lili feels by recognizing outstanding individuals it can strengthen community involvement and inspire our youth to become helpers and leaders of the future.
Official certificates and commemorative collector pins are also available by request from the Hyack Office by calling Brunella at (604) 522-6894.
