Patricia Clark receives Mayor’s City Builder Award
Ottawa – Mayor Jim Watson today announced that the Mayor’s City Builder Award has been presented to Patricia “Pat” Clark for her outstanding contributions and devotion to her community.
Mayor Watson and Beacon Hill-Cyrville Ward Councillor Tim Tierney presented Pat with the award at the Ottawa General Hospital Tuesday where she is undergoing treatment.
A softball organizer in Pineview, Cyrville and Carson Grove, a member of the Gloucester Recreation Development Organization, and a board member of the Community Centres Board for the development of facilities, Pat also served as the Councillor for Cyrville on Gloucester Council from 1992-2000. She served as Executive Director of the Gloucester Fair and was devoted to it for decades.
Pat has always been willing to do unrecognized behind-the-scenes work and she has been a tireless advocate for those she believes have been treated unfairly. Her determination, perseverance and commitment have made her community a better place to live.
The Mayor’s City Builder Award is a civic honour created by Mayor Watson to recognize an individual, group or organization that has, through outstanding volunteerism or exemplary action, demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to making our city a better place today and for the future. This may include lifelong service, outstanding acts of kindness, inspiring charitable work, community building or other exemplary achievements. Individuals, groups or organizations may be nominated by members of City Council or the public. The award is presented at the beginning of each City Council meeting.
