Toronto to honour recipients of recreation awards
City of Toronto staff will join members of the community to present awards to recipients of the Recognition of Excellence Awards and the 25th Wes Dempster Award at a community barbecue in Etobicoke.

Date: Wednesday, May 30
Time: 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Location: Etobicoke Olympium, 590 Rathburn Rd.

The Recognition of Excellence Awards honour members of the Etobicoke/York Adapted and Integrated recreational programs - consisting of swimming, fitness, life skills and social club programs - who have demonstrated leadership and improved their recreational abilities.

The evening also marks the 25th anniversary of the Wes Dempster Award. This award is named in honour of the late Wes Dempster, who was a dedicated volunteer in the Adapted Aquatics program and a staff member of the Elms Pool in Etobicoke. The award is presented to the individual with a special need who has displayed commitment to the aquatic program, personal improvement and congeniality among peers.
