On Thursday May 24th, the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards were held at the Westin Bayshore to recognize outstanding women who have contributed to a variety of professional fields and communities throughout Metro Vancouver.
The Metro Vancouver Regional Parks had two proud representatives in attendance that night:
Jude Grass, a long time volunteer in the Metro Vancouver Regional Parks system who was nominated for a Women of Distinction award in the new category – Environmental Sustainability and Denise Coutts, the Executive Director of Pacific Parklands Foundation. Denise was nominated for a Women of Distinction award in the Non-profit and Public Service category.
A special thank you to all of you that voted for Denise prior to the event!
