Lifetime of Leadership

If you read my August 6 and 8, 2005 blogs, you already know about my friend Blossom Broussard. This week I was proud to learn that she has been given an award for her community involvement.

Presented posthumously, the Myrna Popove Lifetime of Leadership award is to recognize Blossom's achievements to consitently unify and unite and a lifetime spent recognizing, empowering and promoting community. This was Blossom. Her work involved the Teddy Bear Picnic, Coquitlam First Night Society, Coquitlam City Soccer Friendship Tournament and Operation Christmas Child. As a registered marriage commissioner, she had the privilege of uniting 89 couples.

At the awards ceremony, Blossom's husband Jerry Broussard and her sister, Candy Goodard, received standing ovations in appreciation of Blossom's long-time volunteer efforts. Her passing was indeed a loss to the community.

We miss her. We miss the laughter.
