Updated: Dec 14, 2018
Huntsville, O.N. – Congratulations to Tanya Grainger, a REALTOR® with Sutton Group - Muskoka Realty Inc.*, the latest recipient of the Bob Palmer award. Each year, residents of the Dwight region honour an individual who demonstrates exceptional community spirit and dedication. In Tanya’s case, her spirit of giving began when she was a youth and has become a cornerstone of her life.
“Tanya Grainger received the Bob Palmer award for her hard work, dedication and wonderful volunteer work in the community,” says Jamie Lockwood, Broker/Owner at Sutton Group - Muskoka Realty Inc.*
“Tanya earned the Ontario Junior Citizen award at an early age and hasn’t looked back! She has helped fundraise for children with special needs, taught Sunday school and served on several local boards. She is currently a Pathfinder leader, the manager of the Dwight Farmers Market and still holds the position of the Chair for H.O.L.D., a non-profit group that organizes fundraisers and special events to better the towns of Hillside, Oxtongue Lake and Dwight.”
Trevor Docherty, Broker of Record/Owner, states: “What makes the award special is that it is voted on by the community members themselves. Tanya’s tireless work is appreciated by all. On behalf of myself, Jamie and a proud group of her coworkers, we congratulate you Tanya.”
The Bob Palmer award commemorates a man who played a significant role in the Dwight community for more than 20 years before he passed away in 1996. Bob often volunteered his time to run activities and events that added to the quality of life in the region. He redeveloped the winter carnival to incorporate outdoor activities and he was responsible for the formation of the Algonquin Snowmobile Club, one of the first snowmobile clubs to be established in Ontario.
