All the goodness was together in one room yesterday for the Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce - Golden West Radio Citizen & Group of the Year Awards, presented by CAE.

The individuals who were nominated and dozens from the various groups that were selected as finalists were celebrating together.

We honoured River Street Promotions with the Group of the Year Award.  Jared Mathieson, Andy Hamilton, Shae Jameson, James Murdock, Joel Stewart and a number of local volunteers have done and are doing wonderful things in our community, bringing in world-class entertainers and donating ALL the proceeds from their "Homestand" concerts.

Eric Campbell is our Citizen of the Year.  Campbell, now a long-time local teacher, is principal at Sunningdale School.  When he's not at school, he's taking charge of things, coaching hockey and doing his part to raise much needed funding for local charities.  

Good people doing good things - not for the recognition but to make their community, OUR community, a better place.

And today, it strikes me that we are lucky to have these people in Moose Jaw.
