Award named in honor of local woman

Kawartha Lakes Food Source has a new annual award, named after superstar 16-year volunteer Barbara Truax. "This year’s (and the first ever) recipient of this award is Shannon Kuypers. She has been a member of the KLFS fundraising committee for almost four years.

Thanks for being a part of why our community is so wonderful!
