A couple of community groups in Lac Ste. Anne County have been recognized for their work in the community and received a provincial award.
The East End Bus Society and West End Bus Program were two of 11 recipients of the Award of Excellence in Community 2019 at the Premier’s Council Awards on December 3rd.
The awards are held annually to publicly acknowledge the efforts and accomplishments of individuals, groups, businesses, and organizations to develop barrier-free, inclusive communities in Alberta for persons with disabilities.
The two bus services began in 1996 and evolved to become Lac Ste. Anne East End Bus Society. The Society is a co-operative effort between Lac Ste. Anne County, Alberta Beach and the Town of Onoway to provide affordable transportation for seniors and people with disabilities.
