Our third annual salute to the people who make our community, and our world, a better place to live.

By Jeff Rollings, Photographs by Pete Paterson


In the following pages, we are pleased once again to introduce you to some of the extraordinary people who live among us. They are people who demonstrate the very best of the human spirit, whose stories inspire our collective soul and warm a wintery world. They include people who teach us about bravery and dedication, others who encourage the hopes that reside in our youth, and still others who have found a way to laugh in spite of it all.

All that, plus the horse that brung us.

  1. Signe,

    It was wonderful to see Louise Kindree, Marilyn Field, Carol Hall and Joy Bell recognized in your magazine. They are cornerstones in our community and we admire all of them. Also great to see the amazing story on Michael McCreary. All of us want our kids to grow up and find their place in the world, so as a parent, it was a heart-warming article. To have Neirin on the front cover and to hear their story was brilliant. What a beautiful animal. Well done.
