Owen Sound has named Don McMillan as its Senior of the Year.
Mayor Ian Boddy presented the award to McMillan at yesterday's city council meeting, honouring the longtime volunteer who has spent more than 32 years enriching many lives through music.
McMillan has volunteered playing music at local hospitals, senior's homes and at special programs for the Merry Music Makers. He was also a longtime member of the Owen Sound Kiwanis Club and served as chair of the interclub office for 16 years.
McMillan has also spent time helping with various youth and church programs.
"We want to thank Mr. McMillan for what he's done in our community and thank him for his years of service," Boddy says.
McMillan told councillors he has enjoyed his work within the city in accepting the award.
June is Senior's Month in Ontario and Owen Sound presents its Senior of the Year award annually as part of it.
