On May 10 Pinestone Resort will honour Murray Fearrey for his 40 years of service to the community as part of the first annual Pinestone Resort Community Builder Awards night. While Fearrey’s award will highlight the evening the event will also recognize the past contributions of various individuals and organizations that have helped to shape and build the Haliburton Highlands community we live in today.
Pinestone general manager John Teljeur said: “We wanted to give the community a chance to recognize people who have given a lot to this community in the past though their names may not be in the headlines now or sadly may no longer be with us. It’s a chance to revisit and learn about our history and recognize valuable contributions.”
Nominations for the Community Builder awards will open later in March and the public is encouraged to participate in not only making nominations but also on helping to decide the winners. Nominators will also have a chance to win dinner for two at the gala to share in the festivities with the person or organization they nominated. Recipients of the Community Builder Award will be notified in advance to give them the chance to share the evening with friends and family as guests of Pinestone Resort.
Recipients will also have their plaque displayed at the resort to showcase their contributions.
Candidates for nominations will have demonstrated significant contributions to the Haliburton Highlands from the year that Pinestone was open in 1976 to present day.
Proceeds from the dinner event will be donated to the high school student’s bursary program to support future community builders. The resort plans to make this an annual event to continue to highlight achievements of those that made our county what it is today.
The awards program will kick off the first annual Pinestone staff reunion weekend in which a variety of entertainment and fun activities for past employees of the resort will be offered.
