Two Lasquetians — Andrew Fall and Richard Bauer — received top recognition this week as they were put forward as nominees in the 14th Islands Trust Community Stewardship Awards Program.

“This year’s stewardship award nominees represent islanders at their best,” Peter Luckham, chair of the Islands Trust Council said in a news release.

Fall was nominated by Sheila Harrington and his nominee profile said, in part: “Andrew Fall is a community champion, researcher and facilitator who helps Lasqueti residents make informed decisions about social and environmental issues affecting life on the island… Andrew was instrumental in the Powell River Regional District’s decision to postpone their bylaw for a proposed North Island 911 service for one year to allow for public consultation to review options for fire, health and public safety with fewer environmental and economic impacts.”

Bauer was nominated by Dazy Drake and his nominee profile said, in part:  “Richard Bauer is a volunteer community steward on Lasqueti Island, a self-reliant community that prides itself on living close to nature. From digging foundations for a community-built health centre to setting up the stage for the annual arts festival, Richard’s commitment to his island community is evident in many projects.”

The Islands Trust Council will select the recipients during its quarterly meeting on Galiano Island June 23-25, 2015.
