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. According to Kirby, Kuypers has helped raise over $45,000 for the food source and puts in over 100 volunteer hours per year." Congrats, Barbara and Shannon! Thanks for being a part of why our community is so wonderful!
