Several decades of community involvement was recognized under one roof Aug. 25.

Al Potvin, Sherryl Smith and Jane Torrance were honoured with Mississippi Mills Community Builder awards during the inaugural ceremony at Almonte Old Town Hall. Council adopted the new awards program back in the spring as a way to recognize the leadership of those who have fostered positive change in the municipality.
