Nominations Open for Senior of the Year

Each year, the City of St. John’s recognizes a senior citizen who has made significant volunteer contributions to the city through improving the quality of life of citizens through community involvement (music, sports, recreation, arts, etc.) and/or service to the community.

In 2020, the Senior of the Year Award was presented to Margaret Thorne:

Margaret was 94 years young when she received this award in 2020. Margaret has dedicated every week for the last 15 years to volunteering at Saint Luke’s Home. She provides support to the residents during meal time, helping with prayer service and to watering plants. During Christmas, Margaret and her friends will go above and beyond to provide the residents that don’t have much with a gift bag on behalf of St. Vincent De Paul. She also offers volunteer time by helping with church services in her community and food banks at Corpus Christi Parish. Margaret travels by foot everywhere she goes and keeps a smile on her face while she does it.  Thank you, Margaret, for the great service you provide to the City of St. John’s.
